    We heard the shock waves caused by this eruption today morning, on Jan 15th which is several hours afterward, as far as around Whitehorse, Yukon in Canada. The booming sound has reached Anchorage, Alaska and hit us too!

    Terrible. I hope the people of the Tonga Kingdom are kept safe, along with those living on the smaller surrounding islands and those sailing between….

    That was a bomb not a volcano. Satellites were spot on to catch footage I’m surprised there was even warnings but that’s just my thoughts and I have absolutely nothing to back my claims . I hope all those beautiful people are safe and the country gives them assistance . I still haven’t heard any politician including the president mention this yet, maybe I just missed it.

    Respects to Andrew Chappelle for pronouncing it properly: who-nga, not hung-gah like most of the other stations are doing.
    But be safe Tonga and all countries/states affected.
