The worst of the storm is over for Fiji but the extent of the damage wrought to the low-lying atolls by Tropical Cyclone Gita remains to be seen. New Zealand Metservice lead meteorologist Michael Martens said the Category 4 cyclone arrived in the southern Lau island group about 6pm yesterday, slowly passing through until about 10pm. "But even several hours either side of that would have been quite bad, similar to what Tonga experienced. "There would have been very strong winds and heavy rain - definitely not something you would want to be in." As the Category 4 storm approached last night, communications were lost with isolated parts of the archipelago, leaving hundreds cut off from contact with the outside world.
