When extreme Category 5 Cyclone Pam struck the Vanuatu capital of Port Vila it caused massive destruction that was eventually shown on our TV screens. ERSA Director, Tony Batten, who has lived in Port Vila for more than five years, experienced the full force of that storm.
His first-person account of the impact and its aftermath are both chilling and inspiring. The story that he tells is too important to keep within a small circle of friends and colleagues. With his permission we have placed the full text of his serial emails here.
