Eruption & Tsunami in Tonga

About This Fund

​​On Saturday morning, an underwater volcano in the South Pacific erupted, triggering a tsunami. The tsunami traveled less than 20 miles before striking Tonga, an island nation east of Australia. Convoy of Hope quickly sprang into action

Residents of Tonga, Australia, New Zealand, and eventually the U.S. heard what many described as a “thunderous roar” as the sound of the blast traveled across the pacific.

The tsunami quickly flooded the island nation as volcanic ash fell through the sky. Nearly all electricity across Tonga soon disappeared, as did phone and internet services. Damage assessment and casualty counts are still pending.

Convoy of Hope is in communication with affected communities and will work to provide relief in the areas of greatest need.
