SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF/AP)– An undersea volcano erupted in spectacular fashion near the Pacific nation of Tonga on Saturday, sending large tsunami waves crashing across the shore and triggering a rare Tsunami advisory for the Northern California coast.

A tsunami capable of producing strong currents hazardous to swimmers, boats, and coastal structures is expected.”
Waves of 1-3 feet are possible.
The weather service issued the following estimated arrival times for the tsunami surge:
Fort Bragg — 7:35 a.m.
Monterey — 7:35 a.m.
Crescent City — 8:00 a.m.
San Francisco — 8:10 a.m.
The National Weather Service (along with Monterey County OES) issued a Tsunami Warning for Coastal Monterey county just after 7:30 this morning.
