    I had no idea this cyclone had hit. Not a word in the other media sources. Our family will pray for our brothers and sisters in Tonga and Samoa and up our donation to humanitarian aid. There is a large island population here in Las Vegas and it's shameful no reported this.

    The islands of Tonga were devastated by Tropical Cyclone Gita. Gita is the worst cyclone to hit the islands in 60 years. Dozens of house were destroyed by the storm. Emergency shelter, water and sanitation needs are great.

    The Mormon missionaries in the island were protected by the LDS Church. They are asking nonmembers on the islands to "look to God and live" (Alma 37:47); but is this a promise they can keep?

    There are so many families in Utah of Samoan and Tongan descent, that I am sure this has impacted their extended families. We pray for all of their well-being!
