Ash in Tonga like 'thick black snow'

From Morning Report, 8:43 am on 25 January 2022

With no rain, Tonga is still blanketed in ash, which some on the ground have described as being like "thick black snow".

Katie Greenwood, from the International Federation of the Red Cross says the ash keeps circulating in the air, causing breathing issues.

It is also affecting ships going to the outer islands - getting into their engine systems.

She spoke to Corin Dann from Suva.
