Cyclone Harold has tracked a path from Vanuatu into Fiji as a category four storm. The main island of Viti Levu has taken the brunt of the impact.

Fijian authorities have requested that people stay indoors and closed roads across Viti Levu to prevent unneccesary travel and allow orderly evacuations.

Hundreds of buildings have been damaged and flood waters have caused further damage to crops and other infrastructure. 

Relief efforts and rebuilding is reported as an extremely difficult task at this time due to the complications of social distancing for the Coronavirus pandemic.
