Volcanic Eruption Was 600 Times More Powerful Than Hiroshima, Many Tongans Went Deaf During Explosion

Zero Hedge – by Tyler Durden

Last week’s eruption of the volcano near the Pacific island nation of Tonga was 600 times more powerful than the nuke dropped on Hiroshima, Japan, in World War II. As a result, the eruption was so loud that many Tongans went deaf after the first explosion.

“The first explosion…our ears were ringing and we couldn’t even hear each other, so all we do is pointing to our families to get up, get ready to run,” Marian Kupu, a journalist on Tonga, told Reuters.  

The eruption was so loud that it could be heard across the world, even thousands of miles away in Alaska.

“This might be the loudest eruption since Krakatau in 1883,” Michael Poland, a geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey, told NPR. 

On Tuesday, the first satellite images shared by Maxar Technologies showed the tiny island nation is smothered in volcanic ash, and building structures were destroyed after a tsunami.

Days later, with limited communications due to a severed undersea communications cable between Tonga and Fiji, pictures showed the devastation on city streets.

New Zealand’s 1 News reveals the first look of the streets of Nuku’alofa, Tonga’s capital, coated with ash.

Areas on the water were utterly devastated by the tsunami

The island’s airport was cleared of ash and fixed on Thursday, allowing New Zealand and Australian military transport planes to deliver generators, hygiene supplies, freshwater, and communications equipment.

  1. Maybe it wasn’t really an eruption
    But more of a strike or explosion ?

    Trying to create a tsunami?
    We all know they want us dead

  2. Another episode of using Pacific Islanders as guinea pigs, nuclear explosion or not… shortly after WW2 the US military (or some rouge agency affiliation) nearly killed everyone on the island of Eniwitok (spelling?) and those that didn’t die got radiation poisoning…and other Pacific Islands including in the Marshall Island group and Polynesia.

  3. The heading of this article is important as it actually reveals that this IS in fact the new weapon of mass destruction. What better way to annihilate masses of people & say it was unfortunately just all due to natural causes so nobody can be held accountable. They’ve actually been doing this on a smaller scale for some time mainly to destroy infrastructure that they can then be paid to rebuild or redevelop & to test & further tweak “human resource management” techniques. Look into the Christchurch earthquakes also in New Zealand & who just so happened to be in that country at the time for “meetings” when all that took place (here’s a clue – people connected to US Homeland Security & FEMA). Also in New Zealand the fairly high incidence of freak tornadoes in the last decade or 2 that just whip up out of nowhere & quickly destroy key “problem” property before just as quickly dissipating. This is in a country that has NO real history of tornadoes due to it basically just being 2 large islands in the Pacific rather than the usual large land mass where tornadoes are common.

    “Weather” & other “natural” weapons are VERY real & they are now the weapons of choice that the self-appointed aristocracy WILL start using more & more on us unless we stop them ASAP!

    For further info dive into the work of Nikola Tesla & the many warnings he & others made about what would happen if his technology was not used for good!
