Scientists warn Tonga eruption may damage environment for years

Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Scientists warn Tonga eruption may damage environment for years” – below is their description.

It’s been three days since the volcanic eruption and tsunami in Tonga – but the full scale of the destruction is only now beginning to emerge.

The government says several smaller islands have had to be evacuated – because nearly every home there was destroyed.

Tonga is a Polynesian kingdom of more than 170 South Pacific islands, many uninhabited, most lined in white beaches and coral reefs and covered with tropical rainforest. The main island, Tongatapu, is protected by lagoons and limestone cliffs. It’s home to the rural capital of Nuku’alofa, as well as beach resorts, plantations and the Ha’amonga ʻa Maui, a monumental coral gate from the 1200s.
