Cyclone Pam also North of Vanuatu

Temotu authorities have received reports of damages in Reef Islands, Tikopia and Anuta.

“According to reports we received from Reefs islands over the weekend all food gardens and food trees were all blown away and destroyed by the heavy rain and strong wind.

 “Most of the people only have very little food supply which will last them this week. In two weeks’ time they should run out of food because all their food gardens and food trees were damaged,” Mr Tego said.

Mining companies are excited, ecologists are worried, and struggling island nations are watching with interest.
