Fiji has been hit by Cyclone Winston – the strongest tropical cyclone ever to strike Fiji!

According to the Joint Typhoon Warning Centre it was the strongest cyclone to ever form in the southern hemisphere.

Cyclone Winston brought wind gusts up to 325kmh. People have likened the sound of the winds and waves to a 747 jet plane or a freight train.

It destroyed homes and brought down trees and power lines. All schools in Fiji will be closed for a week.

Large parts of Fiji are still without power, and people have been told to stay indoors until power lines and fallen trees were cleared.

Winston is now heading west away from Fiji but is still a category 5 storm.

New Zealand has sent an Air Force Orion to Fiji to help survey cyclone damage.
