Via BBC News: Cyclone Pam: Vanuatu islanders forced to drink saltwater. Click through for the full report with photos and two videos. Excerpt:
People living on a remote island in the north-west of Vanuatu are having to drink harmful saltwater following last week's cyclone, the BBC has discovered.
Residents of Moso say they are still waiting for outside help to arrive.
Aid agencies have begun trying to access the country's small outer islands, but flooding has stopped their planes from landing in some areas.
One pilot said the lush landscape had been transformed and now looked as if it had been destroyed by a bush fire.
In addition to drinking water shortages, officials say there is also a desperate need for food and shelter, with tens of thousands of people now homeless.
Drinking saltwater is damaging as the more a person drinks, the more water already present in the body is rerouted to help dilute the excess of salt.
The United Nations has revised the official number of dead, bringing it down to 11 from an earlier figure of 24. The relatively low number of casualties has been attributed to the advance warnings that were issued.
Four days after the cyclone struck, aid agencies say that outlying areas of Vanuatu hit by Cyclone Pam suffered "significantly worse" damage than the island nation's capital, Port Vila.
