Station appeal bags $26,000

The Auckland based radio station, APNA FM, has raised $26,000 for the victims of Cyclone Tomas.

The station launched its appeal today and is aiming for $150,000. APNA is asking people to donate to its radiothon by giving at designated collection points or to a bank account.

Meanwhile, the New Zealand government says an Air Force Hercules is on standby to make aerial drops to Fiji, where needed.

Earlier, the prime minister, John Key, said the government was waiting to see what damage was done and consider its options then.

Today, the interim government of Fiji also said it would tally up the damage before deciding what assistance to allocate to victims.

Air New Zealand says it has resumed normal service to Fiji's international airport at Nadi.
