Massive shockwave from Tonga volcano was felt around the world as it circled the globe at 830mph (1340 km/h) – Sonic boom heard in Canada and Alaska

Tonga volcano eruption shockwave traveled around the world

The incredible power of the eruption of the Tonga volcano on January 15, 2022, reverberated around the world.

Satellites in space captured the action even before the eruption started, showing the island sinking and then later the mushroom cloud and pressure waves expanding outward.

Approximately 200,000 lightning events struck near Tonga in the first hour of the eruption.

People as far away as Australia and across the ocean in Alaska and Canada heard the sonic boom. That’s the audio of this bang:

Barometers around the world recorded the pressure wave from the South Pacific explosion. Below from Switzerland:

And tsunami waves affected shores all the way on the west coast of the United States.

Incredible speed of the shockwave

Tsunami waves in Oregon and California

Pressure wave crosses the US and globe

In other parts of the world: Netherlands, UK, New England, Colorado, Switzerland

The Krakatoa eruption of 1883 caused shock waves 10,000 times more powerful than that of an hydrogen bomb and shattered eardrums of sailors 40 miles away.

  1. Incredible that the sound traveled that far, it’s also incredible that you people are still calling the plane that we live on a “GLOBE” clearly we do not and can not live on a ball. Do your flippin research and you will see rather quickly

    • Clearly you haven’t left your own Comfort bubble. It’s clear you haven’t traveled like hundreds of millions of others have.
      Flat Earth is what the powers-that-be use to teach and deceive. But then enough people traveled, and eventually that lie was exposed. How gratifying it must be for the powers that be to still be able to manipulate individuals even to the point they believe the old lies.

    This was not a “volcano”.
    This was the Russian NUKE TORPEDO called the POSEIDON.
    You are LYING.
    STOP IT.
    E-7 Ret.

  3. Yesterday, when I observed the satellite view of the shockwave, I could tell we would hear more about it today.

    Pretty massive display on that audio clip up top.
