Local residents walk past debris as a wave breaks nearby in Port Vila, the capital city of the Pacific island nation of Vanuatu March 14, 2015. Winds of up to 250 kilometers an hour (155 mph) ripped metal roofs off houses and downed trees in Vanuatu on Saturday, as relief agencies braced for a major rescue operation and unconfirmed reports said dozens had already died. Witnesses described sea surges of up to eight meters (yards) and flooding throughout the capital Port Vila after the category 5 cyclone named Pam hit the country late on Friday.
