A tsunami warning has been issued for the islands of Tonga after an underwater volcano in the South Pacific exploded in a violent eruption on Saturday, sending a cloud of ash and gas steam into the air.

The Hunga-Tonga-Hunga-Ha'apai volcano first erupted Friday, sending a plume of ash 20 kilometers (12.4 miles) into the air, according to CNN affiliate Radio New Zealand (RNZ).

A second eruption hit on Saturday at 5:26 p.m. local time, RNZ reported.

In addition to the tsunami warming, Tonga's Meteorological Services have issued advisories for heavy rain, flash flooding and strong winds in lands and coastal waters.

The nearby island of Fiji has also issued a public advisory asking people living in low lying coastal areas to "move to safety in anticipation of the strong currents and dangerous waves."

An earlier tsunami warning issued for American Samoa has since been canceled, according to the NWS Pacific Tsunami Warning Center.

It's amazing how something so terrifying can look so beautiful, the shock wave is massive. Just to think this kind of eruption is tiny compared to what Yellowstone could do.

I live in Cali and I haven’t received anything. I live in the Hollywood area and I thought it was affected as well?
