Cyclone Keni smashes Fiji's Kadavu Island

From Morning Report, 6:47 am on 11 April 2018

Fiji's Kadavu has suffered a direct hit from Cyclone Keni with its highly destructive winds wiping out homes, uprooting trees and capsizing boats on the south side of the island. It's the second cyclone to hit Fiji in just over a week after Cyclone Josie left six people dead over Easter. Last week's major flooding in the west and north of Fiji also left two dead at the weekend. Luke Kerchevale runs the Matava Eco Resort on Kandavu. He told RNZ reporter Emma Hatton that the speed of the storm took them by suprise.
