Cyclone Winston - Alex Perrotet

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:29 pm on 22 February 2016

Aerial images of the destruction caused by tropical cyclone Winston have been released by the New Zealand Defence Force. The storm hit late on Saturday, and destroyed villages, crops and caused extensive flooding. The death toll has risen to 10, with concerns that number could rise when communication is restored to outlying islands. It was the most powerful storm in Fiji's recorded history. RNZ International's Alex Perrotet is on the ground in Fiji.
