Cruise ship leaves Tonga early to avoid tsunami

Tongans took the tsunami warning in their stride, with no one panicking.

That's according to our reporter in Nukualofa, Monalisa Palu.

She told Bruce Hill just before the warning was cancelled that the cruise ship Seaborne Quest was forced to leave an hour earlier than scheduled so it could be in deeper water if a tsunami did hit.

Presenter: Bruce Hill
