Cyclone Gita moves out of Fiji, heading to Vanuatu

Cyclone Gita moves out of Fiji waters, it’s been upgraded to a category five storm and is now heading towards Vanuatu’s most southern islands and New Caledonia.

Fiji authorities say it brought strong winds to islands in the southern Lau group, Pacific Beat reports.

The remote Ono-i-Lau islands faced gusts of up to 190 kilometres per hour as the storm brushed past yesterday afternoon, cutting off landline communication.

However mobile phone services are still working, and villagers on Ono-i-Lau have told Pacific Beat that while no lives were lost in the storm, food crops and several houses were destroyed.
