A tsunami warning has been issued for Australia after an undersea volcano in the Pacific Ocean caused havoc in Tonga, AND NOW HAWAII

The Joint Australian Tsunami Warning Centre issued an urgent alert that dangerous waves will start to affect Australia from 9.45pm on Saturday and that residents should move back from the water’s edge.

Residents on Lord Howe Island, 780km east of Sydney, have been told to evacuate as the tsunami bears down on the offshore territory.

Terrified locals were forced to flee for their lives in Tonga as a surging tsunami waves crashed into homes and volcanic ash rained down from the sky.

Residents were warned to get out of the water and move to higher ground from as far away as Fiji as homes in the small South Pacific nation were swept away by the rising torrent.

Australia joined Tonga, New Zealand, Fiji and American Samoa in issuing tsunami warnings after the ‘violent’ eruption of the Hunga-Tonga-Hunga-Ha’apai volcano, 30km from the Tongan archipelago.

The undersea volcanic eruption was visible from space and triggered a 7.4 magnitude earthquake.

The Australian warning was for a vast stretch of coastline from southern Queensland to Tasmania with the threat to the mainland centred around waterways where coastal flooding could occur.

But the The Bureau of Meteorology said evacuations on the Australian mainland are ‘not necessary’.
