Fiji were severely hit by the cyclone Winston in the night from 20 to 21 February, the most destructive that the archipelago has ever known, with winds exceeding 300 km/h. This meteorological accident is a human, economic and ecological disaster , whose magnitude is still difficult to measure due to the scattered islands, which has about 900,000 inhabitants. The international community is mobilizing to help the Fijians, by all means available.
The Pacific Community disseminates several atlases on the different archipelagos, as we talked about in the article Géoclips du bout du monde. The atlas on Fiji has been recently enhanced to allow estimation of people affected by the cyclone.
