The weather has eased and the storm has passed, but people in Tonga still have a lot of cleaning-up to do.
Cyclone Rene swept across the Pacific Island earlier this week. It hit American Samoa with winds gusting up to 144 kilometres per hour. That was enough to shut down the Pago Pago International airport, along with schools and government departments.
By the time the storm hit Tonga, the winds had calmed slightly. They still brought down trees and power-lines, but overall, there was less damage than most had been anticipating.
Officials from the National Disaster Management Office say there have been no reports of injuries or fatalities, but they are still investigating.
New Zealand Prime Minister John Key has pledged to provide aid to Tonga if necessary.
