government of trying to silence the opposition potter. while concerns are growing for the pacific island nation of tango after its unami with waves more than a metre high hit, the island internet has been caught and the full extent of the damage is unclear. it was triggered by an underwater volcanic eruption on saturday. the russians sent shock waves across the pacific. soon, ami warnings were issued in countries including you, zealand, japan, peru, and even as far as the west coast of the united states. we can now speak to dr. robert wyatt. he's a professor of natural hazards and virginia tech and the united states. he joins us from blacksburg, virginia. hello to you, professor weiss now how would you describe for our viewers the russian that then cause the su nami in tonga. i think there's only one word that would describe
