Report from Tanna following Cyclone Pam
30 March, 2015

Tanna is naked. 

An island that was lush and green has been stripped bare as far as the eye can see. The contours of the land are visible as they have never been visible before. The vegetation looks as though it has been through a clean bushfire. The villages are bare. The houses are gone – flattened by cyclone Pam. The people remain. It is with thanks to our Father that we found not one person on the ridge where the school is located was even injured. Unfortunately, two people on a neighbouring ridge were killed and several hurt- one very seriously. All of the brothers and sisters and all of the students are ok.

Once in a lifetime 

The people tell us how they cowered in the buildings from the cyclone. They tell us that they have never been through a cyclone like that one in their lifetimes. They tell how they ran from one building to another as they thought that one might collapse. The walls shook and groaned and one of the buildings kept lifting up and down. It was terrifying for them.
