A woman who was unable to contact her parents for a week after a volcano erupted near Tonga has described finally hearing their voices again as the “best sound in the world”.

One week on, many families are still unable to contact loved ones after an undersea volcano erupted near Tonga on January 15, sending a tsunami across its shores and damaging ocean cables.

UN humanitarian officials report more than 80% of Tonga’s population have been impacted by the deadly Hunga Tonga eruption, which has left the Pacific Island nation grappling with injuries, loss of homes and polluted water.
