Cyclone Pam beats down on Vanuatu

The Vanuatu archipelago is being impacted by a monster category five typhoon (hurricane) named Pam.  Pam is dumping nearly two feet of water on the islands of the nation especially on the island which the capital of Vanuatu, Port Vila, is situated.  Typhoon Pam is packing winds over 160 MPH and gusts possibly up to 210 MPH with a storm surge possibly over 20 feet (about 7 meters).  This storm is for the record books, as mass devastation is expected in Vanuatu and some surrounding island nations.

Although most connection in Vanuatu is cut off currently due to the storm, stay safe to those in Vanuatu and for anyone in danger of a natural disaster anywhere.
