People sit at a kava bar operating with limited electricity days after Cyclone Pam in Port Vila, capital city of the Pacific island nation of Vanuatu March 19, 2015. The sprinkling of fairy lights on the roadside was the only sign of life as darkness descended and a curfew began in Vanuatu's shattered capital, Port Vila, in the aftermath of Cyclone Pam this week. Ignoring calls to stay at home, men were gathering among the debris of blasted trees and twisted corrugated iron to swap news of the storm over a drink of kava, a mildly intoxicating brew that is deeply embedded in the social fabric of Pacific islanders. Vanuatu escaped the worst with only 11 people confirmed dead. But as the rebuild begins, one concern is for the devastated kava crop, a major export and vital source of cash for subsistence farmers in the South Pacific island nation.

A visitor looks at gas canisters that were salvaged from trash picked from Mount Everest and made into prayer wheels during a visual art symposium in Kathmandu November 25, 2012. Fifteen Nepali artists closeted for a month with a heap of 1.5 metric tons (1.7 tons) of trash picked up from Mount Everest transformed the litter into art, creating 75 sculptures, including one of a yak and another of wind chimes, made from empty oxygen bottles, gas canisters, food cans, torn tents, ropes, crampons, boots, plates, twisted aluminium ladders and torn plastic bags dumped by climbers over decades on the slopes of the world's highest mountain. Kripa Rana Shahi, director of art group Da Mind Tree, said the sculpting - and a resulting recent exhibition in the Nepali capital of Kathmandu - was aimed at spreading awareness about keeping Mount Everest clean.

Twisted metal hangs from a tree in the front yard of where a house once stood after tornadoes moved through the area in Henryville, Indiana March 4, 2012. Calm weather gave dazed residents of storm-wracked towns a respite early on Sunday as they dug out from a chain of tornadoes that cut a swath of destruction from the Midwest to the Gulf of Mexico, killing at least 39 people.

A set of rugby goal posts stand twisted by Cyclone Yasi in the northern Australian town of Tully February 3, 2011. Australians voiced relief and surprise after one of the world's most powerful cyclones spared the nation's northeast coast from expected devastation on Thursday, with no reported deaths despite winds tearing off roofs and toppling trees.

A woman watches a U.S. Navy helicopter search the coast line near the village of Leone on the west side of American Samoa one day after an earthquake caused a tsunami on the island, September 30, 2009. Rescuers pulled bodies from the mud and twisted rubble and fished bloated corpses from the South Pacifc's blue sea off Samoa on Wednesday as the death toll from a series of tsunamis continued to rise. Four powerful tsunamis generated by a huge undersea quake crashed into Samoa and neighbouring American Samoa on Tuesday, destroying in minutes what was a South Pacific paradise of palm trees, resorts and pristine beaches.
