It was on the official website that IPMA revealed the changes in sea level. According to the published note, "the signal with the largest amplitude, about 40 cm, was recorded in the Ponta Delcada, Azores, and this phenomenon was observed on the island of Madeira (measured at 20 cm in the funnel) and on the ground. Values here were generally less than 20" [centímetros], Except Beniche, 39 [centímetros]".
The note further states, "The origin of these recordings is related to the atmospheric shock wave resulting from the volcanic eruption, which spread around the world, creating specific conditions in the oceans that energize the generation of a tsunami. Meteor - tsunami of volcanic origin".
"The tsunami, which formed in the Pacific Ocean, spread to various oceans, including the Atlantic. , IPMA adds, and states that "it is monitoring the development of the situation."
