5 Houses known to be destroyed by Cyclone Tomas Tabiang, Rabi Fiji

Ken just spoke with Uea at Tabiang village and he has 5 houses nearby destroyed by Cyclone Tomas. They are all moving out now to higher ground at Rabi High School.

Binati around at Tabwewa says all the food trees are gone now but house was still holding. As we have advised him that the Cyclone is still coming at them and will get worse he is now preparing the rooms inside the house to protect them all if the roof goes. They are turning over the beds and making barriers to protect them. Children will go into a chest freezer that they have turned on its side and secured inside the house.

We have lost contact with Taveuni, and already heard of one reported death in Fiji from Tomas.

Let's pray that everyone on Rabi remains safe.
