Cyclone Oli Hits French Polynesia

February 4, 2010 — Destructive winds and massive waves crash the shores of Tahiti and Bora Bora.

The worst is over; but in many places, the damage has already been done.

Tropical Storm Oli hit the French Polynesia yesterday, forcing hundreds of people to leave their homes.

Waves up to seven metres high crashed the shores, and wind gusts of up to 200 kilometres per hour damaged buildings.

In Tahiti, roads, harbours and airports were closed. In Bora Bora, hundreds of tourists were taken to temporary shelters.

What's left of the storm is now making its' way towards the islands of Tubai and Mataura.
