An underwater volcano erupts in Tonga, prompting a tsunami warning

An underwater volcano erupts in Tonga, prompting a tsunami warning

An underwater volcano erupted off Tonga, triggering a tsunami warning for several South Pacific island nations on Saturday. 

An underwater volcano erupted near the remote Pacific nation of Tonga on Saturday, triggering a tsunami warning for the South Pacific and the west coast of the United States, and causing strong waves and currents in many coastal areas.


The volcano erupted dramatically, sending gas and ash plumes thousands of feet into the atmosphere, although initial reports of damage were limited.

A four-foot tsunami wave was reported in Tonga's capital, Nuku'alofa, sending people to higher ground, and eyewitnesses said ash fell from the sky. According to The Associated Press, there was no immediate official report on the extent of the injuries or damage, but internet service in the country was disrupted, making it difficult to assess.

Despite Tonga's geographical isolation, after the initial eruption a loud sound was heard as far away as New Zealand, 1,100 miles northeast of Tongatapu, the main island of the archipelago.

In the United States, officials urged residents of most coastal areas along the West Coast, Alaska and Hawaii to stay off the coast and move to higher ground.

In Japan, the country's meteorological agency reported that the four-foot wave had reached the far southern island of Amami Oshima, and smaller surges occurred in other areas along Japan's Pacific coast, according to Reuters.

Warnings were heard across the Pacific. New Zealand's National Emergency Management Agency advised people in coastal areas to expect "rapid and unusual currents and unexpected surges along the coast". And on their Facebook pages, meteorological services for Fiji and Samoa also issued alerts, advising people to stay away from low-lying coastal areas.

The volcano, Hunga Tonga-Hunga Hapai, which is about 40 miles north of Tongatapu, was relatively dormant for many years. According to a report by the Smithsonian Institution's Global Volcanism Program, it began to erupt intermittently in December, but by January 3, activity had decreased significantly.

Satellite imagery of the eruption shared on Twitter by New Zealand's National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research on Saturday showed "a brief spike in air pressure in New Zealand as an atmospheric shock wave."

According to Brian Garcia, a Warning Coordinating Meteorologist, the tsunami came into motion when an underwater volcano erupted in the South Pacific on Saturday in parts of California's central coast including ports, marinas, low-lying roads, roads and parking lots. I got filled with water. National Weather Service in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The water also crashed on the walls of the sea, he said. But the damage appeared to be limited to the lowest areas of the coastline.

In the United States, the National Tsunami Warning Center issued a tsunami advisory for the West Coast for Pacific time Saturday morning, which includes the Washington and Oregon coasts, warning that strong currents and waves will cause "or very near" people in the water. would pose a threat to. , "The first wave may not be the biggest," said the advisor.

By 8:30 a.m., water levels in Monterey, California and San Francisco had risen to six feet, and higher levels were expected later in the day. In Port San Luis Harbour, between San Jose and Los Angeles, waves greater than four feet were measured by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Water rose in Santa Cruz Harbor, damaging some boats and submerging the parking lot, and people were evacuated from docks, sidewalks and nearby shops. "We have literally seen cars floating by," said Mr. Garcia.

On a beach near Pillar Point Harbor, 25 miles south of San Francisco, two people who were standing on a dock were washed away at sea, but were quickly rescued and no one was injured, a local fire department official said. Not done.

A tsunami wave may not appear as a single large wave, but instead involves a rapid and continuous flow of water in low-lying areas over tens of minutes.

“It becomes very dangerous because there is a lot of water here and it is moving so fast; You can't outrun it, and you can't overtake it," Mr. Garcia said.

The National Weather Service has advised anyone in the coastal areas of California, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia and Alaska to "get in and out of the beach, as the tsunami is expected to affect the coast and gulf for the remainder of the day." . harbour and marina."

The US National Weather Service issued a tsunami advisory for the entire west coast following a massive volcanic eruption in Tonga.

Tsunamis form when large amounts of water – in the ocean, in a bay or a lake – are displaced quickly, usually through earthquakes or volcanic activity.

A four-foot tsunami struck the South Pacific nation of Tonga on Saturday when a nearby underwater volcano about 40 miles north of the archipelago's main island erupted spectacularly, sending ash into the sky, and became visible from space. The giver was making an explosive plume. ,

The tsunami that killed hundreds of people in Indonesia in December 2018 in Sumatra and Java was also caused by volcanic activity. About half an hour ago there was an eruption on the volcanic island of Anak Krakatau.

In an earthquake, water displacement can occur when the ground shakes as a fault breaks. This was the mechanism by which a magnitude 9.1 earthquake in the Aceh province of northern Indonesia on December 26, 2004, caused large waves in the Indian Ocean and killed 225,000 people.

Several other tsunamis have also followed earthquakes, including in September 2018, which devastated the city of Palu on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi after a magnitude 7.5 earthquake.

Volcanic activity creates tsunamis differently. One possibility is an explosive eruption, or the general weakening of the sides of a volcano passing hot magma. Either way, part of the volcano could collapse, causing landslides that could displace water.

Another possible mechanism is the collapse of a magma chamber beneath the volcano as it empties during an eruption.

Volcano-related tsunamis are not uncommon. An eruption in Japan in 1792 produced waves several hundred feet high. A landslide during the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens in Washington created large waves in a nearby lake.

Perhaps the most famous volcanic disaster in history, the 1883 eruption of Krakatau, also known as Krakatau, triggered a tsunami that killed thousands. (Anak Krakatau Island was formed on the site of Krakatau, which was wiped out in the 1883 incident.)

The volcano that erupted on Saturday and triggered a tsunami in the Pacific Ocean was relatively dormant for many years.

Hunga Tonga-Hunga Haapai Volcano is partially submerged about 40 miles north of Tongatapu, the main island of the nation of Tonga. According to a report by the Smithsonian Institution's Global Volcanism Program, it began to erupt intermittently in December, but by January 3, activity had decreased significantly.

According to the BBC, the volcano erupted in 2014, creating a new island that eventually became home to blooming flora and barn owls.

Satellite imagery of the eruption shared on Twitter by New Zealand's National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research on Saturday showed "a brief spike in air pressure in New Zealand as an atmospheric shock wave."

In a thread on Twitter, Dr. Janine Krippner, a volcanologist at the Smithsonian Institution, said that "the majority of the volcano is submarine."

The strength and potential impact of an eruption is estimated using the Volcanic Explosivity Index, or VEI, which takes into account the amount of material ejected during the eruption and the height the plume reaches.

VEI Saturday's eruption has not yet been predicted, but prior to the eruption, the volcano had a maximum VEI. It was supposed to be able to explode with 2 of

VEI Explosions with magnitude 6 or more send so much gas and particles into the atmosphere that they can have a cooling effect on the climate for many years, by reflecting more sunlight away from the Earth's surface. But explosions of that magnitude are very rare. The latest was Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines in 1991.

According to data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, there have been 296 tsunami events since 2001.

But devastating tsunamis are rare events. According to the Global Historical Tsunami Database, tsunamis that cause damage or death near their source occur only twice per year. Tsunamis that cause damage or death along coasts more than 620 miles away occur about twice per decade.

Indian Ocean in 2004

On December 26, 2004, after a 9.1 magnitude underwater earthquake struck off the Indonesian island of Sumatra, water walls traveled thousands of miles across the Pacific, including more than 250,000 in half a dozen countries in South and Southeast Asia. People were killed, thousands of people were killed. missing more.

The earthquake set off a tsunami that produced speeds of up to 500 mph, then crashed into coastal areas of Sri Lanka, India, Thailand, Indonesia, the Maldives and Malaysia as 40-foot-high walls of water.

An 8.9-magnitude earthquake off the east coast of Honshu, Japan, triggered a devastating tsunami on March 11, 2011, sending huge waves to coastal cities in northern Japan.

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the tsunami was "seen throughout the Pacific and caused tremendous local devastation." The tsunami also triggered tidal surges in parts of South America.

The highest tsunami wave was 127 feet in Iwate Prefecture, an area 300 miles north of Tokyo.

Indonesia in 2018

Within months of each other, two tsunamis caused major destruction in parts of Indonesia.

On September 28, 2018, a tsunami triggered by a 7.5 magnitude earthquake struck the island of Sulawesi in Indonesia, destroying thousands of homes and killing more than 1,200 people.

The damage was particularly devastating because Indonesia's early warning system for tsunamis had not turned off. The open water tsunami buoy had not operated since 2012 due to vandalism and lack of maintenance.

Three months later, on December 22, an underwater landslide caused by volcanic activity triggered a second tsunami that affected areas around the Sunda Strait, including the Pandeglang district, Serang and the beaches of South Lampung, according to NOAA.

In 1960, a 9.5-magnitude earthquake off the coast of Chile killed 1,600 people and damaged the city of Valdivia.

In 1960, a 9.5-magnitude earthquake, considered the largest of the 20th century, struck off the coast of Chile outside the city of Valdivia, causing a tsunami. About 1,600 people died in this disaster, of which tsunamis were responsible for 1,000 deaths. According to NOAA, that tsunami killed 60 people on the Hawaiian Islands and 200 in Japan.

Japan 1792

One of the most devastating tsunamis occurred in Japan at the end of the 18th century. The descriptions of the disaster in Japanese literature are somewhat conflicting, especially with regard to dates, but it has been estimated that in the winters of 1791 and 1792, there was a strong eruption of Mount Unzen volcano on the island of Kyushu, which moved south-west. The western most point. In Japan, that lasted for months.

At the end of the eruption, the side of the mountain collapsed and caused a tsunami, which was thrown east towards the city of Kumamoto. The disaster has been recorded as having killed 15,000 people, and a third of them were killed by the wave.

Amazing Tips for Using the Space Heater Safely in Your Home

Amazing Tips for Using the Space Heater Safely in Your Home

 Safety tips you should always follow when using a space heater

This winter is bringing cold temperatures and snowy conditions across the country, with more chilly days ahead. If you don't have a reliable radiator, heat source or you just don't want to keep the heat on all day long—you may want something beyond bundling in a winter coat or snuggling under a warm blanket.

Amazing Tips for Using the Space Heater Safely in Your Home

Using space heaters is a convenient and cost-effective way many homes can keep a specific area or room warm. And while space heaters can keep you toasty, they are not without a set of risks.

Start the new year with deals and shopping advice straight to your phone. Sign up for text message alerts from the experts at Reviewed.

Most notably, space heaters can be a fire hazard, as we recently saw in a fire in a high-rise apartment in the Bronx. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), heating equipment is the leading cause of fires in the United States. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, they are linked to more than 25,000 residential fires and 300 deaths annually.

When using a space heater, it is important to follow the manufacturer's instructions as well as expert guidance provided by resources such as the United States Department of Energy. Here are some space heater safety tips to keep in mind when using a space heater.

 Learn How Your Space Heater Works Understand how your space heater works and be sure to refer to the manufacturer's label for specific instructions.

Knowledge is power, and the same goes for understanding how your space heater actually produces heat. Some of the primary types of space heaters available include mica heaters, ceramic fan-forced heaters, and oil-filled convection heaters, as well as those that use infrared technology.

Ceramic fan-forced heaters push hot air over a ceramic plate. This makes them a great candidate for heating a special space or a small room, but not necessarily an entire basement. Ceramic heaters also work quickly, pushing hot air out as soon as they are turned on. While the product shell may be safe to touch with some models, be sure to avoid touching an overly hot grill.

The mica space heater is an energy-efficient option because it operates as part radiant-part convection heater. You can apply this near-silent beauty to the wall of your room.

If you want to heat an entire room, you might want to check out oil-filled convection heaters; These work similar to the oil heaters in older homes. While they work nice and quiet, they are very hot to the touch on all sides and may not be the best choice if you have small children or pets.

Infrared heaters—sometimes referred to as quartz heaters—use beam heat to heat directly, rather than creating overall heat in a room. Their tops and sides are usually cold to the touch. Because this heater uses infrared heat instead of moving air, it does not dry out a room as other space heaters might.

Understanding what type of space heater you own and how your space heater works can give you a better idea of ​​the safety risks involved. Be sure to thoroughly read any warning labels and manufacturer-supplied information for your particular model.

 Always Monitor Your Space Heater

NFPA experts recommend that you stay in the room when you use a space heater and monitor it closely. This means never use the space heater while sleeping or leave it on when you leave the room. Leaving a space heater unattended increases the potential for creating a fire hazard that may not be immediately stopped in its tracks.

When you are finished using your space heater, be sure to turn it off completely and unplug it. If your home is properly insulated, a space heater can keep a room warm enough even after it's turned off. You may not get the heat all day, but you will be much safer.

Give Your Space Heater Space and Stability

For fire safety reasons, the NFPA suggests leaving at least a 3-foot gap between a space heater and any objects, such as carpets, upholstery, curtains, paper, or blankets.

Make sure your space heater is secured on a flat, solid ground or hardwood surface so it doesn't tip over or accidentally fall over.

Additionally, keep your space heater completely away from anything - whether it is flammable or not. It will also allow the space heater to work more efficiently.

Keep Hot-to-Touch Heaters Away from People and Pets Potential fires aren't the only hazard associated with space heaters – they can cause surface burns if not handled carefully.

Potential fires aren't the only hazard associated with space heaters – they can cause surface burn injuries if not handled carefully.

The NFPA's 3-foot space rule also applies to people and pets. Don't place a space heater in a high-traffic area or hallway—that way, you (or your baby or fur babies) won't walk in or run into it.

Some space heaters can actually be wall-mounted, which can help keep them out of reach of pets and children. For example, you can permanently mount the De'Longhi MicaThermic Panel heater to the wall.

 Make sure there is an automatic shut-off function

One of the most important features of a space heater is the auto shut-off protection function. With this feature, space heaters can automatically shut down when any imminent danger is detected. This means that if the heater starts to overheat internally or the tips run out for some reason, the device implements an automatic shut-off to avoid sparks of any kind of fire as a result.

We've tested a number of space heaters in Reviewed based on functionality and safety. Our best overall space heater, the D'Longhi Mycathermic Panel Heater, includes an automatic shut-off feature. The Lasko Ceramic Space Heater—rated our Best Value Space Heater—also comes with automatic overheating protection to ensure any potential fire hazards can be reduced before they become a problem.

Never, ever plug a space heater into a power strip, give your cord some breathing room- don't twist it too much or else you could damage the cord internally, creating a fire hazard .

Give your cord some breathing room- don't let it twist too much otherwise you could damage the cord internally, which could be a fire hazard.

When it comes to powering your space heater, the U.S. The Department of Energy recommends always plugging it directly into your wall outlet to avoid using any power strips or extension cords.

A typical space heater generates up to 1,500 watts of power, so using it with an extension cord—which can't handle the same wattage as a wall outlet—is a dangerous idea.

Test Your Smoke Detectors Regularly

In your home, condo or apartment, you should always have up-to-date, working smoke alarms. Since space heaters have an inherent risk of potential overheating and fire, it is a good idea to test your smoke detectors and make sure they are working properly before you start using your space heater.

You should also test your smoke detectors once a month to make sure the battery is still working properly, even when you've packed your space heater away. Keep in mind that the NFPA recommends you replace your smoke detectors every 10 years, no matter the situation.
