Damaged undersea cable that could tear Tonga apart will take a month to repair

Saturday’s volcanic eruption in the Polynesian Empire was the largest ever recorded in decades.

Wellington, New Zealand:

New Zealand’s foreign ministry said on Wednesday that a cable connecting volcano and tsunami-hit Tonga to the rest of the world would take at least a month to recover.

“The US cable company Subcom advises that it will take at least four weeks to repair Tonga’s cable connection,” the ministry said in an update on the disaster.
