In pictures: Cyclone Zoe
Cyclone Zoe hit remote Pacific islands Tikopia and Anuta (part of Solomon Islands) last weekend with winds estimated to have reached 350 kilometres per hour (220 mph).

Aerial photographs suggest that hundreds of homes have been destroyed - although there is no clear indication how many islanders may have been killed or injured.
