Tonga tsunami warning where waves collide with home after an earthquake

Dramatic footage shows waves rolling through houses along the Tonga coast, as tsunami warnings have been issued throughout the Pacific Islands.

The Tonga Meteorological Bureau issued a warning throughout Tonga on Saturday night after continued underwater volcanic activity.

Radio New Zealand reported that it was after Hunga Tonga Hunga Ha’apai erupted again on Friday, sending ash, steam and gas into the air 20 kilometers.

The volcano is located about 30 kilometers southeast of Tonga’s Fonuafoo Island.

The volcano erupted intermittently in late December.

Radio New Zealand previously reported that Taaniela Kula, Head of Geological Services in Tonga, stated that the eruption had a radius of 260 km.

Kula has previously told RNZ that it is about seven times stronger than the previous eruption on December 20, last year, and continues to grow.
