Tonga's Home Reef Volcano erupted again early this morning, with eruption events increasing over the last 24 hours, sending steam vents 1km into the atmosphere. A volcanic submarine island has re-emerged 10m above sea level and continues to grow larger, Tonga Geological Services said. The volcanic activity poses low risks to aviation, but all mariners are warned to keep away from the area.
