Tonga has been struck by a tsunami as the population races to evacuate in time.

The Tonga Meteorological Services posted to Facebook saying a warning is in place for the entire island.

A witness posted to Facebook the cause was another volcanic eruption in the area.

They wrote " a volcanic explosion just erupted and people have evacuated to higher ground now from possible tsunami waves also ash shards are falling and now the ash clouds are covering the island of Tongatapu,"

"We live in Kolomotu'a near the ocean so we have left already and we are in our cars heading out but traffic on every road Please pray for us as a family and safety."

A chilling video shows a massive surge of water inundating the land as it pours in while someone films from the roof.
