A tsunami advisory was in place for coastal areas of California, Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia on January 15, after an underwater volcano eruption occurred near Tonga hours prior.

Footage by William Link shows waves running up Beverly Beach on Saturday morning. In a Facebook post, Link said the beach “completely disappeared for about 10 minutes.”

The National Weather Service recorded wave heights of 1.5 feet north of Beverly Beach in Port Orford. Residents in coastal areas were advised to move off the beach and out of harbors and marinas.

Tsunami warnings were also issued for areas in the pacific, including Japan, Australia, and New Zealand. Credit: William Link via Storyful
