Evacuation centers around Fiji are now packed with an estimated 10 thousand people, as Cyclone Tomas continues to batter the islands. Marisa Hallisey is the Special Administrator for the Suva city council and she says so far, the city has got off lightly with damage to trees and heavy rain. The Toberua island just off east Suva Resort Alan Bazzana manager says 16 guests have been evacuated but some staff are still waiting for the cyclone to hit.
