Flash flood

Vanuatu's Ambae island hit by flash flood

The Daily Post said the flood struck as the area has been trying to recover from last month's cyclone Hola while trying to cope with ash fall from Manaro volcano.

There is no information about any casualties.

The government has already sent emergency food supplies to the island and approved $US400,000 to be spent on short term food and supplies in the disaster zones of west and south Ambae.
