Tsunami hits the island of Tonga after a volcano erupts

Rome, January 15, 2022 – One tsunami crashed on the island of Tonga. “A 1.2 meter high wave was observed in Nukualofa,” reports the Australian Meteorological Office in a tweet. It is the consequence of the eruption of the vulcano sottomarino South-West, which returned to snort just hours after a tsunami warning issued yesterday following a first eruption was lifted. The maximum recorded height of the waves following yesterday’s eruption was 30 centimeters. Today the impact was much more violent.
