Climate in Vanuatu is tropical with a wet (hot and humid) and dry season. The wet season typically lasts from November to May and the dry season is usually from June to October. Cyclones are common from December to April. One of the most destructive cyclones in Vanuatu's history, Cyclone Pam, hit in March 2015 and was incredibly destructive to the eastern and southern islands of Vanuatu, including Ambrym, Efate (where the capital city is) and Tanna. Many houses were destroyed, but most notably the gardens people live from were wiped out. There are 9 active volcanoes in Vanuatu - many of the islands are volcanic in origin. Our island of Ambrym has 2 active volcanoes at its center.
