Cyclone Ravages South Pacific Islands

SHARE

The island of Vanuatu was hit hard with Tropical Cyclone Pam, which The United Nations declares, is likely to be the worst natural disaster the South Pacific has ever seen. Structures and buildings all over the area have been devastated by this natural disaster. The damages are astronomical in most ares and it is reported that most residents of Vanuatu are now homeless and without any power. Over 250,000 people have been affected by this massive storm and it is feared that dozens of lives have been lost amidst it’s wake. With this cyclone hitting the islands with the force of a Category 5 hurricane and wind gusts that reached 200 mph, it is hard to believe that anything is left standing. Other South Pacific nations which include Soloman Islands, Tuvalu, Papua New Guinea, Kiribati and Fiji also suffered from the severe destruction left behind by Cyclone Pam. Relief teams are currently getting into place to provide support and supplies for the people of Vanuatu. To offer your assistance or donations to the Cyclone Pam disaster relief efforts, please contact The Australian Red Cross or UNICEF.
