No cyclone warning is in force in Rodrigues. Joaninha is moving away from the island. It's has been a tough night for the population after they've had 28 hours of cyclonic conditions.
99% of the population has no electricity and communications are down. There has been substantial damage caused by falling trees thus power lines are down. It will take a while to recover from this and back to normality.
Below are some images of the situation in Rodrigues.

It's still currently gusting around 140kmph. I will update with images later on.
So relieved they are ok although I can see conditions are still very challenging. Hopefully it won't take too long to get everything back to normal.
