satellite images have revealed the devastation caused by the 'once-in-a-millennia' underwater volcanic eruption at the weekend.

The peak of Hunga-Tonga, which has been visible above the ocean since eruptions in 2014/15 formed a new island, has been almost entirely destroyed with just a few scraps of land visible through clouds in images taken Sunday.

Tongatapu has also been badly damaged with water inundating the northern shoreline - facing the volcano - and water damage also visible on the southern side of the island.

An airfield in the southeastern corner of the island also shows signs of water damage, suggesting the wave was able to penetrate at least two miles inland from the coast.

Similar damage is also visible in coastal areas on the islands of Uoleva and Nomuka, with lesser damage to the coastal areas on Uiha island. Ash deposits are visible on all islands, as debris from the eruption rained form the sky.


major problems with communications
I guess we really don't know how much damage / suffering.

These don't even look like the same island, the 100,000 population center is just gone? That was a 45 to 70 foot ridge across there on the north side.
Mods please correct if this is wrong.

a reply to: fromunclexcommunicateThe top picture appears to be a populated island, I am pretty confident that the second I have seen from other pictures, it is the after of a before-and-after of the volcano itself, which is 40? miles from the populated islands. It's been a day or so and we have little idea, very scary, but this is not a before and after of the populated island, pray.

Those two islands that you have in the pictures are two different islands. The bottom one had a volcano05im on it before that picture and the top one still looks like that.

The Hunga Tonga volcano 40 miles to the north split which is no surprise.
Looks like they will get the ash cleared off the Airport runway in populated Tonga fairly quickly so they can bring in aid and water filters. Apparently a major undersea cable was destroyed so they will be relying on satellite links for a while.

I saw a very compelling analysis of the video enlarged and slowed down. It definitely looked like a meteor impact caused the explosion. Then shills jumped on saying it was a missile but they were quickly debunked as a missile would not have showed up on video. What it looked like was a large object began to explode and break up( a sonic boom puff of smoke) and then a larger video image then hitting the water at the sight of the explosion.
What struck me as odd was we had reports of the explosion and then later they said to have video of a prior explosion which wasn't reported until later.
And then coincidentally they ran a story yesterday of how they're tracking a large asteroid as it makes a close pass by of Earth.
I think they don't want to admit they aren't nearly as able to spot and predict these impacts and can't track them and give any warning. They're now trying to make up asteroids they claim to know about and want us to believe they can give us some advanced warning. They can't.

Two New Zealand navy vessels will arrive in Tonga on Friday, carrying much-needed water and other supplies for the Pacific island nation reeling from a volcanic eruption and tsunami, and largely cut off from the outside world.

Hundreds of homes in Tonga's smaller outer islands have been destroyed, and at least three people were killed after Saturday's huge eruption triggered tsunami waves, which rolled over the islands causing what the government has called an unprecedented disaster.

With its airport smothered under a layer of volcanic ash and communications badly hampered by the severing of an undersea cable, information on the scale of the devastation has mostly come from reconnaissance aircraft.

"For the people of Tonga, we're heading their way now with a whole lot of water," Simon Griffiths, captain of the HMNZS Aotearoa, said in a release.


I think we still don't know how bad it was for those poor people

very interesting point.
I wonder if we are going through some asteroid belt and will see more of this.
