Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum is urging people to cover all household water tanks and stay indoors in the event of rain due to the risk of sulfuric acid from the Tonga volcanic eruption this afternoon.

Sayed-Khaiyum has tweeted that they are also monitoring our air quality.

He says they are praying for our Tongan sisters and brothers who are beset by tsunami waves and airborne ash stemming from another volcanic eruption.

Please note a tsunami advisory has been issued.

As a precautionary measure, please move to high ground if you notice a change in wave activity.

Stay with us for developments.
