Samoa Observer, December 22

Cyclone Evan has brought the worst flooding residents can remember to Samoa. Four people are known to have died, and eight fishermen are still missing at sea. Authorities say 4,500 people are in emergency evacuation centres. The local Bahai Centre at Lelata was washed away by a flooding river, and its caretaker, Pene Lealatasi, had to take refuge with his family on a nearby hill. The destruction of infrastructure and the lack of rain since the cyclone mean that there is no fresh water in the area.
