The tropical cyclone killed 27 people in the Solomon Islands last week and has caused unknown destruction in Vanuatu.

Cyclone Harold razed buildings and caused dangerous flooding on Fiji’s largest island, Viti Levu, after hitting Vanuatu as a category five storm on Monday.

The tropical cyclone was downgraded to category four before reaching the waters of Fiji. Fijian authorities ordered people to stay inland and closed all roads on the island of Viti Levu, which is home to the country’s capital Suva and most of the population of the Pacific nation.

Frank Bainimarama, the country’s prime minister, warned on Wednesday that “the worst of TC Harold will attack Fiji this afternoon … Debris and flooding can be deadly.” All Fijians must remain indoors unless instructed to evacuate. “

Harold is expected to hit Tonga in the next 48 hours. The Matangi Tonga website reported that Harold’s arrival in the country would coincide with a royal tide and supermoon early Thursday morning. An extreme high tide warning was in effect for Tonga on Thursday and Friday. Fijian authorities have had days to prepare for the storm, which formed near the Solomon Islands before cutting a destructive path through Vanuatu. The storm has already caused a path of destruction across the Pacific. Twenty-seven people are missing and are feared dead after being washed away by a ferry in rough seas caused by the cyclone in the Solomon Islands.

The storm hit Vanuatu on Monday and two days later, it is still unclear how bad the country went.

The lines of communication with the most affected islands in Vanuatu (Espiritu Santo, Malo and Pentecost, among others) were cut by the storm and today’s calmer weather is expected to bring devastating news of the total devastation of the cyclone.
