      Thanks, Anna!
      Were about to post an update at 11:00UTC.
      Stay safe because the eye of cyclone could pass very close to Rarotonga.
      Please keep us posted.
      Best regards

      We hope you are OK, despite the damage and chaos caused by Cyclone PAT.
      Have received info concerning the damage caused in Rarotonga, which includes downed power and communication lines.
      Once the lines are restored, we’d appreciate your input.
      Thank you.
