“It’s a big explosion,” Meri Taufa, a local who was having dinner at home when it happened, told the staff news site.
She explained, “The house shook. My brother thought bombs were exploding near our house. A few minutes later, water seeped into their house and she saw the wall of a nearby house collapse.
“We immediately realized it was a tsunami and this water flowed into the house,” he said. We heard screams everywhere and everyone started running to higher ground.
Fiji officials said the eruption lasted about eight minutes and was loud enough to hear “thunder-like noises from a distance” over the 800-kilometer Fiji Islands.
