Update on the devastation in Vanuatu

As hours turn into days, the islands that make up Vanuatu, which was recently impacted by a category five monster tropical cyclone, Pam, the residents of the nation of Vanuatu are starting the very long process of rebuilding their lives and their livelihoods. Cyclone Pam impacted the archipelago with winds sustained over 160 MPH and in some places a storm surge well over 15 feet (about 5 meters.)  The people of Vanuatu are starting to gather what is left of their belongings and moving to any place less damaged than where they previously were.  The journey through recovery may take a while, but will eventually be completed in Vanuatu.

Wherever you are, stay safe.
