I shows considerable devastation to Taveuni homes, and says that so far there are six known deaths in Fiji. No information from Taveuni Estates as yet - roads are closed with landslides, fallen trees, and so on, and there is not much phone communication available. The island's hospital, which K and I visited a few years ago, lost part of its roof.
The major challenges now are the basics - shelter, food, and potable water. Relief efforts are in progress. Crop damage poses a longer term problem.
