Satellite images show the aftermath of Tonga volcano’s eruption


Volcanic ash covers rooftops and vegetation in an area of Tonga last week. Thick ash on an airport runway was delaying aid deliveries to the Pacific island nation of Tonga, where significant damage was reported.

The images show populated areas in the archipelago with heavily damaged or destroyed buildings and homes and at least one island covered with ash.
