Storm damages Pitcairn landing place

A tropical storm has caused damage on Pitcairn Island, Britain’s last remaining outpost in the Pacific Ocean.

The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office says there has been damage the longboat landing area and the road leading to Adamstown – the only settlement on the island, and home to 45-or-so islanders – mostly descendants of the Bounty mutineers.

‘Clean-up operations are progressing well but there are restrictions currently in place on landing cruise ship passengers,’ says the FCO’s updated travel advice for the island.

‘Anyone travelling to Pitcairn should contact the Pitcairn Islands Office in Auckland for an update.’

The storm hit on 4 February, 2012.
