Tristan storm ‘worst since 2001 hurricane’

Winds of up to 50 knots have lashed Tristan da Cunha, reports Sarah Glass on the island website. The gales – said to be the worst since the 2001 hurricane that hit the island – wrecked a Wendy house in the children’s playground and caused severe damage to a thatched cottage that was being restored by pensioners as a heritage project.

See Sarah’s report, with pictures, on the Tristan website’s storms page.
