Several people have been seriously injured after a powerful storm lashed the South Pacific island nation of Tonga.
The government has declared a state of emergency.
The cyclone is now moving towards an area south of Fiji.
It is expected to weaken and bring rain and winds to New Zealand by the weekend.
