Lots of places suffering damage, not only from the tsunami but from the tidal surges, rips etc created. A one metre tsunami doesn’t sound like much but that is above normal wave heights and you need to think of it like a consistent bow wave, they just keep coming in at very short intervals pushing the water inland without the chance to recede.
Low lying areas are coping significant damage throughout the Pacific.

3650 kms as the crow flys from Tonga to Sydney and Aus records it’s highest tsunami waves in history of between 80cm to 1metre, that is some hell of an explosion and force. Got to feel for Tonga, Fiji, Samoa and all those low lying nations. Could be days before help arrives due to the volcanic ash cloud.

They are regular tourist attraction here. They even have a star rating.

Mind you, the tide range in that area is near 13 metres.

Still wave, we get them in Oz as well, river flow meets tidal influence = instant wave, great phenomenon

Hi,
   Only one experience of a bore. Camped on The South Cape Estury where the river forms a small lagoon at the beach.
During the night, the high tide topped the sand barrier and a bore ran up the lagoon and funnelled into the river.
The approaching sound had me puzzled (dark at night) but the commotion from a tent closer to the water edge confirmed it must have been a bore.
Dropped pin

Incredible that it only made a 1m wave when you see the power of it from space.
