Large waves also struck Fiji after Japan's massive earthquake.

Eight men from Namama Village in Vanua Levu were unaware of the tsunami warnings and were out fishing on Saturday.

A spokesman told the Fiji Times their boat was anchored on the reef when it was picked up and swept nearly a kilometre towards the road before being washed out again.

All the men are safe
