Tropical Cyclone Evan Hits South Pacific Islands

Suva, FIJI—In mid-December 2012, a Category 4 tropical cyclone tore through Fiji and Samoa. Described as one of the most intense cyclones to hit Fiji in the last 70 years, Cyclone Evan caused wreckage that displaced thousands and damaged infrastructure. One commentator compared the damage in Samoa to that of the cataclysmic tsunami that struck in 2009.

Jehovah’s Witnesses report no fatalities or injuries among their members. However, the cyclone damaged many of the Witnesses’ homes. In Fiji, initial assessments indicated that over 80 homes of Witnesses were either damaged or destroyed. On the Samoan island of Upolu, 47 Witnesses were displaced by the storm.
