NSW has just issued a tsunami warning, from what I can see Port Kembla has started showing some weird tidal measurements

I'm surprised that Hobart had a measurable impact, have seen barely a mention of this on TV

Is Tonga ok?

Not sure, I think their comms are down. There's only a couple videos posted online from when it first hit.

Sea level measurements in Hawaiii have picked it up now as well. West coast of US have put out tsunami warnings.

If the reports of being heard in New Zealand are correct, that would make this eruption one of the loudest sounds in recorded history, rivalling the 1883 Krakatoa eruption. That one was heard from Perth and it took place in Indonesia.

Here's some footage from Fiji that picks up the sonic boom, from about 800km away.
