    Wonder of Science published a timelapse video made by the GOES-West and Himawari-8 satellites.

    In the short video, the smooth surface of the ocean is suddenly interrupted by a giant plume of gray ash, smoke and water escaping. Just like a mushroom from a nuclear explosion.

    Many countries, from Australia to Japan to the US, have issued tsunami warnings. In the capital of Tonga, waves up to 80 cm were observed.

    The Associated Press reported that Internet connection to Tonga was lost due to the island nation accessing the Internet via a submarine cable from Fiji. It was probably damaged during the eruption and tsunami.
