Are you prepared for the cyclone season?

Lautaimi Ielua, 67, Levili

I worry about the house that I am living in right now. I know that the house is not safe from a cyclone. I worry about my children and what we are going to do because I heard that there are warnings of strong winds. I am worried about the strong winds because my family doesn't have that much and we rely on fishing as a source of income. We heard that there will be assistance to fix the house but we are still waiting.

We should be prepared and be strong to face natural disasters like that. Food and water should be prepared. Also on the spiritual side, a person should be prepared and have faith when facing these natural disasters.
