Cyclone Zoe Hits Solomon Islands

The Department of Defence has released aerial photographs of the destruction caused to the Solomon Islands by Cyclone Zoe.

The first picture shows “a village on the remote island of Tikopia in the Solomon Islands after Cyclone Zoe hit the area. Most of the trees were stripped and some village huts were partially damaged. However, the damage was minimal to this area of the island which is the most populated.”

The second picture shows “a village on the protected side of Anuta Island, which was relatively unscathed apart from trees showing storm damage.”

The third picture shows “one of several villages on the remote island of Tikopia, part of the Temotu Province of the Solomon Islands which was damaged during Cyclone Zoe.”

The fourth picture shows “one of several villages on the remote island of Tikopia, part of the Temotu Province of the Solomon Islands which was damaged during Cyclone Zoe.”
