A pretty amazing shot - looks almost like a special effect.

Have no deaths been reported at all on Tonga? If not that's quite amazing.

Some already, there will be quite a few more. Planes only able to land on Tonga today. Took till now to clear the runway of ash.

The vid btw is an excellent summary of what happened. Makes you realise how useless the mainstream media is at reporting hard news as opposed to reporting opinion. smile

I knew it was in the South Pacific. What I didn't know is that Tonga is the last remaining country in the Pacific region that still has its indigenous monarchy.
