High winds from Cyclone Cook

A video has emerged from Vanuatu showing the strength of winds from Cyclone Cook.

In the clip, which was filmed in Port Villa on April 8, trees can be seen taking a battering from the cyclone.

"Many branches were blown down in the storm but only a small amount of trees fell completely down," the filmer wrote online.

Cyclone Cook has just passed over New Zealand causing gusts of up to 209 kilometres per hour (129 mph).
