Destination: Tonga

Travel Warning Issued for Samoa, Tonga

The British Foreign Office is advising travelers to stay away from Samoa, American Samoa and Tonga as the islands struggle with the fall-out from Tuesday’s tsunami. Milder warnings have also been issued for Sumatra, Vietnam, Cambodia and the Philippines.

Volcano Erupts Off Tonga

This gets my vote for photos of the day. Check out this spectacular slideshow of an undersea volcano currently erupting off the Tongan coast. The volcano reportedly poses no threat to the human population in the area, though the rocks it’s throwing off are expected to wash up on the beaches of Fiji. For now, behold the power of nature.
