The Japan Meteorological Agency has announced that the eruption of a submarine volcano in the Tonga Islands on January 15 has caused a rise in tide levels in Japan, and for the time being, a large-scale eruption with a height of more than 15,000 meters overseas. In the event of a major eruption, we are taking measures to call attention within two hours.
According to the Japan Meteorological Agency, repeated eruptions have been confirmed, including the eruption of Manam volcano in October last year. If a normal tsunami caused by an earthquake occurs in this area, the arrival time to the Izu-Ogasawara Islands is expected to be around 11:00. However, if an unusual tide level change occurs due to the eruption, the estimated arrival time is unknown. (Hidemasa Yoshizawa).
