Reports of ‘significant damage’ in Tonga after eruption, tsunami



There are reports of “significant damage” in parts of the Pacific island nation of Tonga following Saturday’s massive volcanic eruption and tsunami, with New Zealand and Australia preparing to send humanitarian assistance amid limited international communications.
Tongan police told the New Zealand High Commission the confirmed death toll stood at two, but the communications blackout meant the true extent of casualties was not clear. Tonga is home to more than 100,000 people who live on more than 30 inhabited islands.

Al Jazeera’s Sarah Clarke reports from Brisbane, in Australia.
