Unfortunately for all of us, nature can sometimes be so angry that it reaches unprecedented heights. Sometimes even literally, as in the case that we’ll be exposing here. The volcanic eruption from Tonga has been so powerful that it sent ripples into space, according to ScienceAlert.com.

There’s even an ongoing eruption that started last year in Tonga, meaning a Polynesian kingdom of over 170 South Pacific islands. But it wasn’t until January 15 that the tremendous explosion occurred. 

Nature has gone berserk

The world has confronted plenty of volcanoes before throughout its history. But few of them reach the power, terror, and magnitude of the one that recently erupted in Tonga.

The eruption in question led to an enormous cloud of ash, tsunamis, and even earthquakes. The distant coastline of Peru had been impacted as well. 

DW News has some important stuff to reveal about the eruption from Tonga:

The YouTube channel writes the following:

A closed airport and lack of communication have continued to hinder international relief measures on the Pacific island nation of Tonga after Saturday’s massive volcanic eruption and tsunami, even as significant damage was reported along the western coast of the country’s main island on Tuesday. The New Zealand High Commission reported damage on the island of Tongatapu, which is home to many holiday resorts, and the waterfront of capital Nuku’alofa. The United Nations also said that satellite visuals showed extensive damage on the western coast of Tongatapu, with several resorts and houses destroyed or severely damaged.

The leader of the Pacific nation even considers the volcanic eruption and the tsunami as causing an unprecedented disaster, according to CNN. The same publication reveals that New Zealand even warned of further eruptions that could complicate the delivery of aid.
