Due to the flooding, Springate has not enjoyed this leg of his world travels. Amy, a Peace Corp volunteer sums up her problem: "My village is under water." Some bloggers in Aotearoa write: "The flood stricken town of Ba & the rest of the affected areas in Fiji will indeed pose alot of health risks for Infants, Children, Youths & Families alike. The pictures is enough to tell us all." Rizwan, an IT professional has posted lots of photos and blogs: "Based on what I've seen, read and heard, the economic costs will be massive. "
