Cyclone Winston hits Fiji sugar industry

fijiFiji’s sugar industry has taken a massive hit from Cyclone Winston, and will struggle to produce at the next harvest, the Fiji Cane Growers Association says.

The category five cyclone, one of the most powerful ever in the region, hit Fiji on February 20, with wind gusts of up to 330 kilometres per hour.

Association CEO Mohammed Rafiq told ABC’s Pacific Beat the extent of damage to the country’s sugar cane crop was substantial.
