Two people drowned at a beach in Peru after high waves were triggered by a massive eruption of an underwater volcano on Sunday.
The Daily Sabah reported that this happened near Tonga in the Pacific Ocean, and the local civil defence authority also reported that two people died from the incident on Sunday.
Peru's National Institute of Civil Defense said in a statement that the death of the two people who drowned, occurred on a beach located in the Lambayeque region.
It was gathered that more than 20 Peruvian ports were temporarily closed as a precautionary measure amid warnings that the volcano was causing abnormally high waves.
The Peruvian police said on Twitter that the two victims were found dead by officers from Naylamp beach police station.
Also, in Japan, thousands of people were advised to evacuate on Sunday as waves of more than a meter hit coastal areas.
