Earlier this month Cyclone Harold caused widespread destruction in Vanuatu, Fiji, Tonga and the Solomon Islands.   Harold was the first Category 5 severe tropical cyclone to occur in the South Pacific basin since Cyclone Gita in 2018 and the most intense tropical cyclone thus far globally in 2020.  An Emergency Response Kit (ERK) contains the basics to get families through the first few weeks of a disaster and includes tarpaulins, mosquito nets, tools, cooking equipment, kitchenware, cleaning materials, first aid kits and clothing.  A number of ERKS are kept in storage in Fiji, Samoa Tonga and the Cook Islands and the photos are of ERKs being delivered in Tonga after the devastation of Cyclone Harold.
