Footage shows that waves of several feet high smashing into the shores along the US West Coast
An undersea volcano erupted in spectacular fashion Saturday near the Pacific nation of Tonga caused the tsunami
Tsunami advisories were issued for Hawaii, Alaska and the US Pacific coast, urging people to stay out of the water and away from beaches and waterways
Satellite images showed that plumes from the explosion reached more than 12 miles above sea level
At its widest, the cloud caused by the ash and steam reached about 150 miles across
The eruption was so massive that its shockwaves were felt as far away as Mount Hood in Oregon
There were no immediate reports of injuries or on the extent of the damage because all internet connectivity with Tonga was lost
