Vanuatu eruption: Authorities struggle to cope

From Morning Report, 7:47 am on 2 October 2017

In Vanuatu local authorities are struggling to cope as the evacuation of 11,000 people from the volcanic island of Ambae continues. More than 7000 of the evacuees are being sent to the neighbouring island of Santo, but there are fears the 19 evacuation centres will not be near enough to house the numbers expected. RNZ Pacific reporter Koroi Hawkins is on the island of Ambae and describes the scene to us.
