Tropical Cyclone at Cook Islands

Initial reports indicate no deaths or serious injuries. However, It is estimated that 80 per cent of the trees on the island are down and there is significant damage to crops and other vegetation. As a result, the government of Cook Islands has declared Aitutaki a disaster zone. In addition, a state of emergency in Rarotonga was also announced.
