serious flooding in Honiara

April 4, 2014

There is major  flooding in Honaiara right now. We’re still in New Zealand, but our colleagues have emailed and posted about it on facebook.

Take a look at pictures from the Solomons newspaper and Australian news.

Six (or eight, or more) are confirmed dead, with 30 or more missing.

Two of the biggest bridges in Honiara have washed away and another has been closed, leaving many cut off from the hospital and other services.

Our colleagues all live on high land, so they and SITAG’s property are all fine. We are all grieving with those who have lost loved ones, homes, businesses, etc. Please pray with us.

Even with foreign aid, it will take a long time for our country to recover from this.
