Tonga, Polynesia, Jan 2022
Tsunami-The underwater Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai volcano erupted, triggering tsunami waves devastating Tonga. The eruption was more powerful than the first atomic bomb sending a plume of ash and water vapor 25 miles into the atmosphere. The diameter of the eruption measured 400 miles. Closed borders and safety protocols, due to the pandemic, made the Relief Team work together with local groups from neighbour Fiji to send food and other supplies by ship.
