Cyclones hit Oceania region
Cyclones also hit the island of Vanuatu and New Caledonia. Fortunately there were no human casualties but flash flooding caused enormous damage. The Oceania Weightlifting Institute was closed for a few days due to the institute being flooded. Water at one stage at the Institute was almost one metre high.
The Institute is built very near to a small river and with massive rain and cyclone winds; the river rose and flooded everywhere.
Last weekend another cyclone hit the island of Samoa; fortunately there was no human casualty.
