Island decimated by tsunami: Photos show emotional gathering of Mango survivors

The sparsely populated islet of Mango was hit by tsunami waves of up to 15 metres high on Saturday 15.

The tsunami wiped out all homes leaving the residents to sleep on the grounds and under mats.

Photos from the scene show the devastating aftermath, with what appeared to be the surviving residents sitting together and waiting for first responders.

The photos were uploaded to Facebook by a person who goes by the name  Piokalafi Fakaoc.

Kaniva News could not independently verify the authenticity of the photos.

However, we can tell from comments, replies and the widely sharing of the photos on Facebook they were taken in Mango after the tsunami.
