Officials noted some maritime disturbances.
The Ecuadorian Navy’s Maritime and Antarctic Agency (Inocar) issued a tsunami alert for the city of Puerto Aurora on Saturday in the Galapagos Islands.
The warning comes after the submarine Hanga-Tonga-Hunga-Habai sank off the coast of the Tonga archipelago in the South Pacific.
“According to tidal recordings from Santa Cruz and Baltra (Galapagos Islands), there are currently disturbances in the sea created by the volcanic eruption, which reach the shores of the Galapagos Islands from 11:43 local time,” Inokar said.
The company also announced that other locations along the Continental and Insular coasts may record similar disturbances at sea. For now, the event is being monitored regularly.
The volcano erupted on Saturday, sending ash, steam and gas 20 kilometers away.
After the eruption, a tsunami alert was issued in Tonga and waves quickly hit homes and destroyed buildings. Images have appeared online from the scene that allow us to understand the extent of the disaster.
The Japan Meteorological Agency has issued a tsunami alert for all Pacific coasts. According to the warning, the waves could reach 3 meters.
Within minutes of the warning, the tsunami made landfall off the southern coast of Japan. The arrival of waves was confirmed in the coastal areas from Doha to Okinawa.
Similarly, a tsunami alert was issued for all states along the west coast of the United States, from Alaska to California, and along the coast of the Canadian province of British Columbia.
