After reaching category 5 ‘super’ status on Wednesday, Cyclone Yasa tracked further north than predicted and made landfall over Bua district on Vanua Levu.
Save the Children Fiji CEO Shairana Ali said:
“It’s still too early to know the extent of the impact, but we’re hearing reports Yasa destroyed entire villages in the north.
“There are collapsed buildings, trees snapped in half and debris strewn all over the ground. Schools have been damaged and roofs blown away.
