We heard this week that Aitutaki was hit by Cyclone Pat. Direct hit and 80-90% of houses have been damaged. I always knew the lagoon was in a top spot for cyclones so I've been checking in during cyclone season and I was so sad to see the damage. Apparently the elderly people on the islands said they can't remember a worse storm.

We don't even know if our hotel is okay, we will probably call them this week.

I'm not even worried about the resorts at the moment, I am just hoping that the people are going to be ok (no one died - thank God!) and that their livelihoods would get back on track quickly.

Here are some pictures from the New Zealand Herald.

Here is a video report from TV NZ.
