Cyclone Wipes Out Entire Island Nation
[su_r_sky_ad]Vanuatu has pretty much been leveled by a monster storm:
The president of Vanuatu has told the BBC most of his people are homeless after the devastating cyclone that hit the Pacific island nation on Friday.
Speaking from Japan, Baldwin Londsdale told the BBC that most of the buildings in the capital Port Vila had been destroyed by Cyclone Pam.
A Red Cross spokesman described the situation as apocalyptic – in some areas, entire villages were swept away.
At least eight people are reported to have been killed.
However, it is feared the toll will rise sharply as rescuers reach outlying islands.
Thousands of people spent a second night in shelters.
The category five storm, with winds of up to 270km/h (170mph), had veered off its expected course and struck populated areas.

Not good. Better not mention ‘climate change’ if you’re in Florida.

Why does the pic look more like Lake Michigan than the south Pacific?

There must have been a lot of gay people on that island. Now that we know what causes hurricanes, lets all pray together and end these tragedies.
