Two brothers still live in this house. Cyclone Evan mercilessly went through Yadua Village and this leaning house is one of the casualties from the category 5 cyclone.
The only village in Yadua, a tiny remote island towards the west end of Vanua Levu in the Bua Province, was one of the most damaged that we saw during this expedition (and we saw some quite intense cyclone damage all throughout the Macuata Province from Mali, Kavewa, Nukusa, Kia and Nukubati Islands topside and quite sadly, damage underwater as well in the Great Sea Reef). The story from Yadua Villagers goes that the winds started at 10pm of December 16th. Cyclone Evan blew and wreaked havoc all the way till 12 noon of the 17th. Everybody from the village evacuated to the concrete school building situated on higher grounds by the hill. The entire row of houses nearest the sea were blown away.
