In The Aftermath...Tonga Volcano



With the Natural Disasters Expo on February 7th & 8th coming up fast we wanted to shine a light on the devastating disaster that happened earlier this month in Tonga.

The blast from the eruption was more powerful than Hiroshima, wiping out all of the new lands along with large portions of the previously existing islands. The blast was preceded by smaller eruptions just days before the eruption blanketed the island with ash, triggering devastating tsunami waves. The blast could be heard as far away as Alaska.

The devastation that happened can not be overstated enough. Right now residents near Tonga are struggling to recover from the destructive volcano eruption and relief is now more essential than it's ever been. The shockwave resulting from the eruption has caused disruptions of power to businesses and internet service in many places. This is just the being of the aftermath and many scientists are scrambling to see what lasting effects will come from this event. According to The New York Times, this could have cooling effects that can have a global impact.
