Tropical cyclone Pam has brought torrential rain and damaging winds to the islands of Melanesia.

As Pam continues its journey across the South Pacific, weather conditions could become much worse as it develops into a "supercyclone".

Pam began to form on March 6, 750km to the east-northeast of the Solomon Islands - a remote island chain about 1,750km northeast of Australia's northeastern city of Cairns.
