My heart goes out to my fellow Fijians in Kadavu, Koro and Ono-i-Lau who faced Tropical Cylcone Gita.

I also send my wishes and prayers to the Tongan community for a quick recovery from the widespread devastation caused by TC Gita.

The pictures and stories uploaded on social media were scary.

The stories shared via The Fiji Times about the frightening experiences brought memories from Severe Tropical Cyclone Winston and how our fellow brothers and sisters braved the ordeal.

It is important to prepare ourselves well as we are in the cyclone season. What happened to the Tongans could also happen to us here at home.

Remember failing to prepare is preparing to fail.

PM Bainimarama's plea to heed warnings must not fall on deaf ears.
