Tiny Island Battered


Tonga declared a state of emergency as they braced for Category-4 Tropical Cyclone Gita.

Bringing winds upwards to 260kph, heavy rain and a dangerous ocean storm surge, Gita has battered the tiny South Pacific island nation.

Now Tonga is dealing with the aftermath of destroyed homes, fallen trees and no power on the island.

Gita is now on track to hit Fiji. Our disaster experts are currently monitoring the situation.
