Any CF members in Vanuatu?

Were any there in the storm? I see some piles of sailboats on the news.....

Re: Any CF members in Vanuatu?

When a storm hit Cabo last year, it took at least a few days for services to get up and running again. My guess is it might take longer from there, unless some boaters have satellite connectivity.

All the best to any and all who were affected.

To answer Cheechako's question: at least one, "No Ties", his wife and his boat.

Right now, they will be dealing most with emergency shelter for those whose homes were destroyed, water for the villages whose supply has been fouled, medical aid. Communications will come later on.

There are probably quite a few CFers from Oz and NZ who have visited there.

Re: Any CF members in Vanuatu?

Yes. we've been there, have some friends on the islands. Very concerned about people on Tanna and Erromango, which look like they might have copped direct hits.


These people live in what to most of us would barely be considered sheds. Mostly woven pandanus walls with reed or sometimes tin roofs. And usually very close to shore too, since fishing is a main source of protein for them.


In the islands apart from Efate and Espiritu Santo, medical help is pretty much unavailable.

agentjohnson,

What is it that you are wanting deleted?

If it were your post, click on the little red outlined triangle with the "!" in it at the lower left end of the post box, and report it to the moderators, who are able to delete it for you.
