Fiji braces for damaging cyclone

As Samoans begin the massive clean-up effort after Cyclone Evan, meteorologists are warning that the storm could threaten northern parts of Tonga tomorrow and reach Fiji by Sunday.

 

The cyclone killed at least two people in the Samoan capital Apia and local media say a number of children were missing after being swept away when the city's river burst its banks.
 
Apia was braced for a second hit from the cyclone but forecasters now believe that's unlikely.
