Hunga Tonga Volcano Eruption Update; The Tsunami was Higher than First Thought

 

The Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai volcano in Tonga on January 15th produced a large and destructive tsunami through a new volcanic eruption. This tsunami occurred due to partial edifice collapse, which destroyed the vast majority of the existing island. We now know the size of the explosion which occurred, and it is one of the largest on record. Also, the tsunami waves were much higher than previously reported, especially along the western coastline of Tongatapu. This video will separate fact from fiction, and discuss the eruption, what its true magnitude is, and what might happen next at Hunga Tonga. It is a very famous volcano as it has produced several spectacular island forming eruptions in the 21st century.
