The biggest cyclone to hit Fiji in 20 years has caused havoc after battering the Pacific nation with winds topping 200km/h (125 mph).

Thousands of people hid in evacuation centres when the category-four storm hit on Monday, wrecking homes, cutting power and causing flash floods.

The cyclone has since been downgraded and is expected to weaken further as it heads into cooler southern waters.
