Two days of rain in Niue have eased worries about drought on the island.
There had been concerns for farmers' crops and worries about the threat from fires and a resident, Hima Douglas, says the downpour is most welcome.
"Well I can say it is a relief for us. We haven't had a decent dollop of rain for a couple of months now. So it started raining a couple of days ago and as you can hear, there is a heavy downpour at the moment,, which is a very very welcome relief."
That is Hima Douglas on Niue.
