The telecommunications company Digicel says all vital communication has been restored to cyclone-hit areas of Ha'apai in Tonga.

It says communication has been down since the category-5 storm struck on Saturday evening.

Digicel says it has provided solar charging stations in Ha'apai for victims to charge their mobile phones and laptops, and all customers have received free credit to call friends and family on other islands.
