Contact made with Tonga’s isolated islands as relief efforts get underway after Cyclone Ian


Contact with small northern islands of the Ha’apai group, home to about 8,000 people, was lost when the category five storm packing winds of more than 200 kilometres per hour swept through the area over the weekend.

Communication and power is still limited in some areas and there is concern for the well-being of residents on low-lying islands.
