Nuku'alofa, Tonga
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.

Nuku‘alofa, Tonga
FROM OUR ARCHIVES, NOVEMBER 2002: When Paul Taylor visits Tonga, he may be rather hoping there will be an earthquake. But he can be forgiven, because he is a volcanologist, from Australia, who studies the activity of volcanoes in the South Pacific, and particularly Tonga, where earthquakes often signal the emergence of interesting new volcanic islands. From Matangi Tonga Magazine Vol. 17, no. 3, November 2002.
