On March 13, 2015, Cyclone Pam reached the islands of Vanuatu and Tuvalu. The category 5 storm caused vast amounts of destruction. Eight people have been confirmed dead, thirty people were injured, and an estimated ten thousand were left homeless.
Vanuatu’s president, Baldwin Lonsdale, reported that the storm had destroyed 90 percent of the buildings in the capital city, Port Vila, alone. By Monday night, local officials had still been unable to make contact with outlying islands.
Immediate needs include establishing reliable communications and obtaining food, shelter, fresh water, and emergency supplies.
