Unknown yet. There will probably be a climate impact, but to what extent i'm not sure off yet.



NWS gave a tsunami alert for western coast of US. (although probably not a damaging one, 1 to 3 ft waves are expected).

An instrumental tsunami was observed on Easter Island in Chile. This morning the western US coast could have a tsunami, likely not (too) big, but probably observeable if only instrumental.

Tongan King has been evacuated.



Vanuatu has been hit by the tsunami and there have been floods with damage. Because of the affected areas mostly being at night, information is not always yet clear.

Japan issued a tsunami warning for waves up to 2-3 metres high but they talk about an earthquake?

Pinatubo compared with Hunga Tonga. Pinatubo's eruption was partially a typhoon that struck Phillipines at the same time.

Helicopter warns people for tsunami in Orange County, USA (tsunami arrived in Monterrey). These people are heroes for doing that.

Hopefully the waves are not too high (and they probably won't) but still small waves are dangerous for swimmers too.
