New aerial photos of Tonga shows volcanic island split from eruption

The world is literally shaken after the massive volcano on Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai erupted over the weekend.

As Australia and New Zealand reach the islands to survey the damage, we can now see clearly the effect the volcano has had on the islands it was formed between.

The UN is growing more concerned after receiving a distress signal from Tongan islands that were home to 105 people.
