Officials in Tonga stated that 84% of its entire 105,000 population are severely affected by tsunami and ash caused by the eruption.
It was reported that waves of tsunami pervaded the whole of Tonga in the previous week, toppling buildings and ruining villages.
According to BBC News civilians are affected by the ash and gas emitted by the volcano. There also has been flooding.
Three victims of the eruption to have been confirmed dead so far are Lataimaumi Lauaki who is a 49-year-old woman, Telai Tetu’ila who is a 65-year-old man, and Angela Glover who is a British citizen.

The emission caused by the eruption is reported to be difficult to counter.
At first, using water covered in volcano ashes sparked fears of risking diarrhoea and cholera.
These fears were allayed after continual testing of water sources proved that water was safe for general use.
However, fine ash from the eruption pervades the atmosphere causing breathing fears and chances of affecting the cardiovascular system.
So far, 62 people had to be relocated from Mango to Nomuka after the complete loss of homes and properties.
Report from the government attests that more people will have to be relocated to the island of Tongatapu so food provision can be made with ease.

Foreign assistance has been moving into the country since last week.
A large portion of the foreign assistance comes from Australia and New Zealand which have used their air force to supply food, water and health kits.
The Internet has been cut off from the country because the sea cable directing internet towards the island has been severely damaged.
Update on the island is dated to Friday and was only shared Monday by Australia’s diplomatic aid on the island.
