Volcanoes are one of nature’s violent disasters. A single eruption can spell out massive and devastating consequence in its wake. These normally happened atop mountains that are already deemed volcanic, and despite that, nature doesn’t care when to set off a blast. Albeit mountain, valley, terrain, or even ocean. Of course, volcanoes erupt underwater, and if you’re thinking that would be subtle than being on earth. Spoiler alert: oceanic volcanoes are far more dangerous.
Recently, this rare but real natural phenomenon played itself in the Pacific Ocean. The Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai volcano eruption has caused devastating effects all over. Here’s what actually happens during such unforeseen events, and what has played out over the past few days.
