Twenty-one died in North Carolina alone. However, the total death count will likely be revised downward in the next update of this report based on data from NWS personnel to be published in Storm Data, since the NWS attempts to list deaths directly attributable to the weather. For example, most vehicle accidents and heart attacks from over-exertion after a hurricane are not considered direct deaths.

Tropical Cyclone,Fiji: Tropical Disturbance TD03F intensified into a Tropical Depression on 8 January 2022 and into a category 1 Tropical Cyclone CODY on 10 January 2022 bringing significant rain which affected the whole of Fiji. The high level of precipitation that has occurred over the Fiji group in the last seven days has been significant, making most of the area water-logged and highly susceptible to flooding. Significant flooding in the West, Central and Northern parts of Fiji has occurred, landslides have been reported, flooding is starting to recede in some areas, but in others water levels remain due to the saturation of the land.

Earthquake,Afghanistan: Medium humanitarian impact, magnitude 5.6M

Tsunami,Tonga: On Saturday at 5:30 p.m., according to Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology, a tsunami wave of 1.2 metres (about 4 feet) hit the coastline in and around Nuku’alofa causing yet to be detailed damage to buildings and infrastructure. The authorities had earlier urged people to move to higher ground and to protect water sources.

Tsunami,Peru: Police in Peru say two people have died after being swept away by high waves believed to have been caused by Saturday's huge volcanic eruption in the South Pacific nation of Tonga. Police say the two women had been visiting a beach in the northern region of Lambayeque on Saturday.

Volcano,Fiji: A tsunami warning was issued for all coastal areas and maritime islands on 15 Jan, 2022, but was cancelled this morning. Villages in Lau, Kadavu, Vanua Levu and parts of the Rewa Delta on Viti Levu reported strong currents, high waves and surges which inundated villages. On the islands of Vatoa and Ono i Lau, which are closer to Tonga than mainland Fiji, villagers reported the presence of volcanic ash. The islands of Moce, Moala, Kadavu and Taveuni were hit by a low-level tsunami which caused some flooding, according to authorities.

Volcano,Tonga: After weeks of volcanic activity emitting ash, the Hunga Tonga Hunga Ha’apai underwater volcano in Tonga erupted violently last Saturday (15 January). The eruption is said to be one of the biggest in Tonga in the last 30 years, with satellite imagery indicating a 5 km wide plume of ash, steam, and gas, rising approximately 20 km above the volcano. The volcanic eruption generated a 1.2-metre tsunami that crashed ashore in coastal areas of Tonga’s capital, Nuku’alofa.
