Despite warnings to leave flimsy homes for the sturdier halls and churches which were set up as evacuation centres, some people decided to stay put and had lucky escapes. Fane Lomani lives near Tavua in the north of the main island of Viti Levu and she says many homes around her solid concrete house now lie in ruins. She says their occupants only left at the last minute at the height of the storm.
