The country is a set of some some 80 islands.
It is very poor, probably meaning that few people live under safe roof.
I heard that Australia, NZ and France (which has the Nouvelle Calédonie island there) have sent disaster relief.
They also said that electricity was down in most places.

Actually, this is quite good for the vegetation. Every 20 years. Then vegetation can grow again. Eucalyptus.

Maori canoe bailer collected by British missionary eaten by cannibals sold in UK

The bailer sold for STG7600 ($NZ14,700) at Duke's auction house in Dorchester on Thursday, outstripping estimates of STG800 to STG1500, the Dorset Echo reports.

STG would be sterling?

The bailer was collected by missionary John Williams, who was battered to death and eaten by cannibals in Erromango, Vanuatu in 1839.
