It was the most powerful natural explosion to occur on Earth in over a hundred years. On January 15th, 2022, the South Pacific Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai undersea volcano exploded in an epic eruption that produced a fantastically immense mushroom cloud that extended over 36 miles into the atmosphere — the tallest volcanic plume ever recorded.
The incredibly rare natural disaster was caught on camera by orbital satellites, which allowed the world to witness the full extent of the massive blast as it released energy that is estimated to have been equivalent to 50 megatons or more of TNT, though a final figure won’t be available for weeks or months.
Update – June 2nd, 2022: New research shows that the Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai volcanic eruption on January the 15th was LARGER than even the Mt Pinatubo eruption of 1991! Tonga is now believed to have been a VEI 6 magnitude eruption, the largest volcanic eruption on earth since the Novarupta eruption of 1912. It produced the tallest plume on record, which reached all the way to the mesosphere, as well as a monstrous airblast not seen since the ferocious eruption of Krakatoa in 1883!

The shock wave that this explosion caused was measured to be about 4 times stronger than the one produced by the Tsar Bomba Soviet nuclear test in 1961, which yielded about 50 megatons of energy. (That test detonated the most powerful nuclear explosion ever to occur on Earth.)

The wave sped away from Tonga and traveled around the globe at least three times, and was measured by pressure sensors on the other side of the planet. It contributed to spreading a tsunami that reached as far as the Oregon coast.
So, suffice it to say that this volcanic eruption was easily the most powerful of the 21st century. You have to go back to 1991’s Pinatubo eruption to find a volcanic event that begins to compare, though Pinatubo did not produce an airblast that even comes close to Tonga’s. This was a true phenomenon — a rare, and extremely powerful once-in-a-century natural explosion that could never possibly be predicted. Except that it was.
On July 20th, 2021, six months before the epic eruption, I went to Twitter to post a very simple tweet. I used a graphic of an erupting volcano, producing a peculiar mushroom cloud, and posted just 9 words. See below. (I also predicted the explosion in a Youtube video I posted in mid September 2021. You can watch that here.)

I had conducted a remote viewing session, using my unique lucid-dream-induced viewing method, that alerted me to the fact that a cataclysmic explosion would occur on Earth in the near future — and that it would create a mushroom cloud of epic proportions. I saw a LOT of water, a LOT of ash, and I felt a wave of explosive energy that is literally indescribable. Didn’t take long for me to realize what this was about.
By the way, on Twitter, you can’t backdate tweets, or edit old ones, so there is no way to cheat and pretend you predicted the future. That’s why I use Twitter to post my predictions — so people know that I’m not playing. Yes, I’ve predicted rare events before, including the election of Donald Trump, which you can read about here.
Thankfully, this explosion did not result in many deaths, as the volcano is isolated enough from population centers, but it’s an important SIGN of things to come. There are more cataclysms on the way, over the next few years, and the ones I see coming won’t be as kind to us human beings as this one was.

Be well, my friends, and keep an eye out for trouble. These are interesting times…
