Underwater volcano erupts off Tonga

19 Mar 09 - "Large amounts of pumice thrown up by the erupting volcano would likely clog beaches on the southern coast of nearby Fiji islands within a short time, Mafi said."

18 Mar 09 – Spectacular columns of steam and smoke spewed out of the sea about 6 miles (10 km) from the main island of Tongatapu - an area where up to 36 undersea volcanoes are clustered.

An eruption in 2002 in the same area, near two small volcanic islands, resulted in an islet appearing for several weeks afterwards.

"This eruption is bigger than in 2002, it seems there are two vents coming out," said Tonga's head geologist, Kelepi Mafi.

"It's a very significant eruption, on quite a large scale,” said Mafi.

          2,150-degree lava – 10 times the boiling point - pouring into the seas,
        but our politicians keep on blaming us. You don’t suppose it has anything
        to do with piling more taxes on us, do you?
