Following an underground volcanic eruption on Friday night, the National Weather Service (NWS) has declared tsunami warnings all through the west coast.

A tsunami has been generated by an eruption near the island kingdom of Tonga in the South Pacific, which also will strike the entire west coast. The Tonga Meteorological Services announced tsunami warnings for the archipelago, with information from the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center suggesting waves averaging barely under three feet high.

The NWS in Portland, Seattle, and the Bay Area, therefore, provide an indication of how comprehensive the storm is expected to hit.

The tsunami warning has been elevated to advisory, which denotes waves up to three feet high and severe water conditions continuing.
