Cyclone GITA

Nature is always right, isn’t it?

Today I am going to tell you what it’s like to be in a cyclone.

On Thursday the 8th :
It rained all day long with strong winds. A storm.

On Friday the 9th :
At noon, the storm turned into cyclone level 1. We have received several messages from the authorities asking us to stay at home.

What is the most impressive ? the sound of the wind rushing into the house

At 17 P.M., we didn’t have electricity (until the next day at noon).

From 20 P.M.the cyclone went away. Unfortunately cyclone has gained strength (level 5) and done extensive damages on Tonga, as you can read it in this article :

Here on Wallis Island main damages were lying trees. Fortunately for us !
