Images showed this Saturday a delicate situation in the South Pacific, where a shock wave caused by an eruption on the island of Tonga has generated a dangerous tsunami, with waves over 1 meter.

So far no possible victims have been reported, however, live and satellite videos show how large waves hit houses and buildings located on the beachfront and quickly flooded the vicinity.

The tsunami was caused by a violent volcanic eruption, which was also reflected in the videos made by inhabitants of the area, who in the midst of panic decided to report what happened through social networks.

Among the homemade images is heard how the sound of the shock wave after the eruption of the underwater volcano Hunga-Tonga-Hunga-Ha’apai forced a tsunami warning to be issued on the island.
