    A category 5 cyclone, Tropical Cyclone Winston cut a path of destruction across Fiji's islands on 20th and 21st February.

    Packing winds of 230km per hour and gusts up to 325kmph, it devastated many regions in the east. In some villages, 100% of the houses were destroyed. 350,000 people, 40% of the population, were affected. The response is steadily moving into the early recovery phase
