#CycloneWinston

MOST RECENT

Fun fact: We survives Cyclone Winston (a category 5) in Fiji ! It was massive and fatal. We were boarded up in the ball room with all resort guests for the night while the cyclone ripped through Fiji! We couldn’t fly home so we’re stuck on the island for 3 days extra with no power and phones so couldn’t contact home. It’s amazing to watch what a small community does to protect their island. Fiji are still on the clean up from Winston and now Fiji at preparing for Cyclone Keni (a category 3)! Thinking of you Fiji! You got this 👊🏻 #cyclonewinston #fijicyclone #cyclonekeni

Fiji adventure after a cyclone and a capsized yacht! The reason I must go to Zurich, Switzerland to see new friends made through providing medical assistance.

Crowded much? Tea Tree cyclone Winston 2014🌊💦💨. I don’t think I have ever seen more people in the water. The news hyped the swell basically told all the brizzy crew to drive to Noosa. I arrived at 3am on the Saturday and I got the last park in the lions club car park across the road from the bus station. It was literally gridlocked from Noosa junction at 5am. Maybe they should put a huge 20 storey concrete car park in the Noosa national park🤓. #travelqld #noosa_qld #qldtourism #sunshinecoast #noosasurfing #SeeAustralia #sunshinecoastphotographer #surfing #qld #queensland #thisisqueensland #surfphotography #surfphoto #picoftheday #surf #surfer #surfing #ocean #eumundimarkets #nikon #worldsurfinsta #teatree #australia #lineup #australia #queensland #cyclonewinston

In 2014 this was a vibrant colourful & mesmerising reef of beauty near Taveuni, Fiji. In 2014 I witnessed nature remove it from existence over night. In 2016, 29% of the Great Barrier reef in Australia died. In my career I am lucky to have dived on some of the most beautiful reefs on earth. I am also unlucky to have seen some of those reefs completely eradicated from existence during Cyclone Winston. (and nearly myself) I have also witnessed widespread coral bleaching and the complete decsemation of local fish populations. The current human model of consumption & destruction is no longer sustainable.
Time for change.
There is a good documentary on Netflix at the moment called Chasing Coral. I recommend you watch it. ✌️😐 http://www.chasingcoral.com

HURRICANE SEASON
Around this time two years ago, I happened to be on Taveuni, an island in Fiji, during a Category 5 hurricane, Cyclone Winston—the largest to ever hit the Southern Hemisphere. This year, a figurative hurricane hit my life at the same time of the year.

What I learned after the fact is that Cyclone Winston literally fertilized the land for rebirth in the midst of its devastation. The storms in our lives often do the same. “When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.” --Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

It's been two years since Cyclone Winston struck in Fiji.⠀

As part of their rehabilitation response post Cyclone, Habitat Fiji have trained a total of 1,386 community builders with basic construction training to increase the capacity of people to rebuild their homes. What a great effort!⠀

Looks like the sunshine coast is getting some more of this very soon!

It's shaping up as an absolute cracker later this week with some reports showing brief moments of up to 19-second period! Will it match #cyclonewinston in 2016 (pictured)? 📷 by us #cyclonegita #cycloneswell #stormsurf #coolangatta #greenmount #snapperrocks #greenmount #cycloneswell

After all the villages we planned for got their hampers we had some extra and an inventory of cyclone grade roofing screws! We dropped them off here at Dromoninuku village. There were buildings still without roofing since Cyclone Winston damaged the village. Another great year of results for the Holiday Hamper project!! #2017 #Dromoninuku #fiji #northernroute #savusavu #savusavucommunityfoundation #scf #helpfiji #jmcfiji #holidays #hampers #donate #nonprofit #southpacific #roofing #cyclone #winston #cyclonewinston #recovery #construction #giving #contactus thanks again to the crew from @jmcfijiresort 🙏🏻 #grateful #appreciative

Several volunteers spent time at the newly repaired Moto Sanatan Sammelan School, which had been damaged by Tropical Cyclone Winston in 2016. They painted classrooms, designed educational murals, and created a “health corner”, for the kindergarten children, with posters about the importance of dental hygiene. _____________________________________________________ #fiji #projectsabroad #projectsabroadfiji #volunteer #volunteerabroad #volunteerfiji ##travel #helplearnexplore #cyclonewinston #schoolrepair #painting #decorating
