The Pacific nation of Tonga has issued a tsunami warning after a massive undersea volcanic eruption.
It caused large waves to crash into the island, and islanders living by the coast fled for their lives.
Footage on social media shows people scrambling to get away from the waves and reach higher ground.
“My first instinct was to take cover under the table. I grabbed my little sister and screamed at my parents and others in the house to do the same”.
Taufa said that, suddenly, water started filling her home.
“You could just hear screams everywhere, people screaming for safety, for everyone to get to higher ground,” she said.
Satellite images showed the violent undersea eruption, with data from the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center saying waves of 80 centimeters (2.6 feet) had been detected, AP reports. –
