Cyclone Harold is bearing down on Fiji, where torrential rain has flooded rivers and powerful winds have already caused significant damage.
The storm has weakened somewhat - now Category 4 - but it is still packing a punch a day after it tore a trail of destruction across Vanuatu.
There, the scale of devastation is only just starting to emerge. And both countries are also dealing with coronavirus issues.
