Two weeks on from Cyclone Tino, Tuvalu is still reeling from the devastation wrought. 

A state of emergency issued on 24 January is still in force as the government continues to assess the damage caused to most of the country's low-lying islands.

The government says about half of the country's 11,000 people have been severely affected.
