Tornadoes associated with Tropical Cyclone Harold have severely affected some houses and buildings in Nakasi and Nausori – it resulted in the roof of Bhawani Dayal School getting ripped off and blown away.

Nadi Weather Office Director, Misaele Funaki says that it is possible that severe tropical cyclones like Harold can spawn tornadoes after people from Vusuya in Nausori also said that their homes were damaged by a tornado at about 3 o’çlock this morning.


We are getting reports that about 7 houses have been damaged in Vusuya, and houses in Nakasi and Bhawani Dayal School have been badly damaged.

15 houses have been badly damaged by strong winds and rain in Waidamudamu, Nausori early this morning.

Resident Ashwin Prasad says it seems a tornado blew their roof away at about 4.30am.

He says his family had to take shelter under their tables.

Prasad also says that at least two of his neighbours are injured.

Another resident, Umesh Chand says he has never seen such a situation in Waidamudamu.

He says he was woken up at around 4am because of the heavy rain and strong winds.

He adds that Waidamudamu is flooded and the water level has risen to about 4 feet.
