Massive volcano eruption triggers tsunami alerts across Pacific | DW News

Concerns are growing for the Pacific island of Tonga after a tsunami with waves more than a meter high washed over the island. Internet service has been disrupted, so the full extent of the damage remains unknown. An underwater volcanic eruption on Saturday triggered tsunami warnings across the Pacific Rim.
The massive volcanic eruption sent shockwaves across the South Pacific. It triggered tsunami warnings in multiple countries including New Zealand, Japan, Peru and even as far the West Coast of the US. People are being urged to stay away from shores and evacuate to higher grounds. So far there have been no reported casualties.
The underwater eruption was so powerful that it was detected around the world. Satellite images show gas and ash being thrown thousands of meters into the Earth’s atmosphere.
Communication links to Tonga have been damaged, but the capital of Tonga has sustained significant damage, says New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.
People in New Zealand said they received no warning of the tsunami, even though the volcano’s explosion could be heard in some parts of the country.
Many were still out on the water on their boats, which have suffered severe damage.
Japan was also put on high alert. Thousands evacuated their homes, moving to shelters to stay safe.

  1. The use of thought/belief transmitting mind control technology has been in use targeting various politicians, law enforcement command personnel and media presenters in many nations around the world. The technology is capable of disrupting thought and hijacking what is spoken with transmitted words and at times short sentences from the technological device which is approximately 4 feet in length and 4 inches wide. It is housed in a titanium casing, has a long range of operating effectiveness, can be used remotely with a powered transmitter that is located in the vicinity of the target. The use of orbiting satellites arranged to operate with the technology are clandestinely used on those that are not located in the operating vicinity of the ground-based technological devices. Subjected victims are at times under the influence of narcotics which are secretly mixed with tampered consumables which can increase the effectiveness of the technology in certain circumstances.
