Recent satellite images show that the Tonga volcano whose violent eruption triggered a tsunami in the Pacific Ocean over the weekend has practically disappeared after the explosion recorded on Saturday, one of the most powerful in three decades.

Recent photographs of the United Nations Satellite Centre (UNOSAT) reveal that following the eruption of the Hunga Tonga Hunga Ha'apa volcano, only two small portions of land remain above sea level. EFE
