Nadi Weather Office Director, Rajendra Prasad, says very severe damage is now expected in Cikobia, an island to the north of Vanua Levu, which is feeling the effects of cyclone Tomas first.

Strong winds have destroyed seven homes on Qamea Island to the east of Vanua Levu, in the last few hours.

A resident told Fijivillage that everyone is now moving to more secure homes.
