    Shock waves, landslides may have caused 'rare' volcano tsunami: experts

    PARIS, France (AFP) — A rare volcano-triggered tsunami sparked by the eruption of Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai in Tonga could have been caused by shock waves or shifting underwater land, experts said Monday. “A volcanic-source tsunami event is rare but not unprecedented,” a post on the website for New Zealand’s geological hazard monitoring system GNS said Monday. GNS Tsunami Duty Officer Jonathan Hanson said it probably occurred in part thanks to a previous eruption of the […]

    Satellite Footage of Tonga Undersea Volcano.

    Stunning footage of the volcanic eruption spewing ash 12km into the atmosphere. Here's hoping the best for the 100,000 people on the island of Tonga which is apparently covered in ash and still being assessed.

    New Post has been published on https://notimundo.com.mx/internacional/el-gobierno-de-tonga-declara-emergencia-tras-erupcion-del-volcan/

    El gobierno de Tonga declara emergencia tras erupción del volcán
    El gobierno de Tonga declaró el estado de emergencia tras la masiva erupción volcánica del sábado y el posterior tsunami, dijo este martes el Alto Comisionado interino de Tonga, Peter Lund, en una entrevista telefónica con el programa de noticias del Pacífico Tagata Pasifika, de la cadena TVNZ.
    Lund dice que aunque hubo daños significativos en la costa occidental de la isla principal de Tonga, Tongatapu, la mayoría de la gente [en Tongatapu] está “sana y salva”.
    “Hay una gran operación de limpieza en marcha. La ciudad [Nuku’alofa] quedó cubierta por una espesa forma de polvo volcánico, pero mira que están haciendo progresos. Se han despejado las carreteras, se están limpiando los edificios”, dijo Lund. “Nuku’alofa está intentando volver a la normalidad”.
    Los equipos de limpieza están avanzando mucho en la limpieza de la ceniza volcánica de las carreteras y los escombros, y la prioridad es conseguir que se despeje la pista del aeropuerto para que se puedan entregar los suministros de ayuda, dijo.
    Nueva Zelandia se ofreció a proporcionar equipos de análisis de agua, generadores y otros equipos de socorro para ayudar a la población de Tonga, añadió.
    Al menos tres muertos en Tonga
    Al menos tres personas murieron en Tonga tras la erupción y el posterior tsunami, según informó este martes la oficina del primer ministro de Tonga en un comunicado.
    Las tres víctimas mortales son una ciudadana británico, una mujer de 65 años de la isla de Mango y un hombre de 49 años de la isla de Nomuka, según el comunicado.
    CNN informó previamente que el cuerpo de la británica Angela Glover fue encontrado tras ser arrastrado por las olas, según dijo su hermano, Nick Eleini, en un comunicado el lunes.
    Glover, de 50 años, que vivía en la capital, Nuku’alofa, con su marido y dirigía una organización benéfica para el bienestar de los animales, intentaba rescatar a sus perros cuando las olas la golpearon, dijo Eleini.

    1.18.22 Headlines

    WORLD NEWS

    Tonga: Despite huge volcano blast, Tonga avoids widespread disaster (AP)

    “The blast from the volcano could be heard in Alaska, and the waves crossed the ocean to cause an oil spill and two drownings in Peru. The startling satellite images resembled a massive nuclear explosion. And yet, despite sitting almost on top of the volcano that erupted so violently on Saturday, the Pacific nation of Tonga appears to have avoided the widespread devastation that many initially feared. In its first update since the eruption, the government said Tuesday it has confirmed three deaths — two local residents and a British woman.”

    Hong Kong: To kill 2,000 animals after hamsters get Covid (AP)

    “Hong Kong authorities said Tuesday that they will kill about 2,000 small animals, including hamsters, after several tested positive for the coronavirus at a pet store where an employee was also infected. The city will also stop the sale of hamsters and the import of small mammals, according to officials from the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department.”

    Indonesia: New capital Nusantara named, approving shift from Jakarta (CNN)

    “Indonesia has named its new capital Nusantara, as lawmakers approve the shift from Jakarta to Kalimantan -- a jungle-covered area on the east of Borneo island. The new name translates to "archipelago" in the Indonesian language. Concerns over the sustainability of the congested and rapidly sinking political center of Jakarta prompted the need for a new capital, and the nation's House of Representatives officially passed a bill on Tuesday regarding the relocation.”

    US NEWS

    Ukraine: Blinken to visit Ukraine, meet Russia’s FM as tensions flare (AP)

    “The State Department said Blinken will travel to Kyiv on Wednesday to meet with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, move on to Berlin and then meet Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in Geneva on Friday. The hastily arranged trip aims to show U.S. support for Ukraine and impress on Russia the need for de-escalation.”

    Wildfire: US plans $50B wildfire fight where forests, suburbia meet up (AP)

    “The Biden administration plans to significantly expand efforts to stave off catastrophic wildfires that have torched areas of the U.S. West by more aggressively thinning forests around areas called “hotspots” where nature and neighborhoods collide. As climate change heats up and dries out the West, administration officials said they have crafted a $50 billion plan to more than double the use of controlled fires and logging to reduce trees and other vegetation that serves as tinder in the most at-risk areas.”

    Nuclear Power: US states pursue nuclear power for emission cuts (AP)

    “Nuclear power is emerging as an answer to fill the gap as states transition away from coal, oil and natural gas to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and stave off the worst effects of a warming planet. The renewed interest in nuclear comes as companies, including one started by Microsoft founder Bill Gates, are developing smaller, cheaper reactors that could supplement the power grid in communities across the U.S.”

    Honestly, if you don’t care deeply for your fellow humans, if no part of you feels a connection and kinship even with people on the opposite side of the globe, who you have never met, then I don’t want to know you. I can’t understand people who just… don’t care unless it affects them. People who can joke about real human suffering simply because they do not personally know the humans who are suffering. What is that like?

    I know I’m a soft bleeding heart, but how do you not even recognize yourself in the face of another? The human animal is diverse and far-ranging, but we come from the same root. We all sing and dance and make dumplings. If I am a brief moment of the universe consciously experiencing itself, so is everyone else. Each of our brief moments has never happened before and will never happen again in the exact same way. What a wonderful, valuable thing!

    And what a sad thing when people’s moments are cut short. Even by random events that no one could have prevented. Perhaps especially then. How do you not mourn their ending? How do you justify the lack of feeling? It makes sense that you would be most affected by the people who are close to you, but truly, does no part of you resonate with your distant cousins at all?

    Now, that’s a tragedy.

    #humans#humanity #don’t mind me philosophizing over here #just saw people saying nonsense in response to the situation in #Tonga #and it really upset me #maybe they’re just trying to cope with the fact that it could just as easily happen to them #but I wish they would keep it to themselves #tonga volcanic eruption #tonga tsunami#hunga tonga #hunga tonga hunga ha'apai
