Tropical Cyclone Tomas Hit Fiji

Tomas Cyclone hit Fiji

Tropical Cyclone Tomas hit the northern islands of Fiji on Monday evening.

It brought very strong wind; about 275 km an hour or 170 miles an hour.

It also brought very heavy rain.

It is a Category 4 storm which is the second strongest storm.

The Category 5 storm is the strongest of all.

It is expected to bring heavy rain and strong wind to Suva.

Suva is the capital of Fiji.

It is on the main island named Viti Levu.

The very strong wind can blow away houses that are not strongly built.

A hospital roof was blown away by the strong wind.

The storm caused huge waves as high as 8 meters.

Cikoba Island felt the full force of the storm.

All contact to the island has been lost.

The schools are closed until Tuesday.

Cyclone is a natural disaster.

I think we should try to help them as soon as possible.
