This is an historical event[edit]

This article is about an historical event which happened over 40 years ago. It is helpful to include a reference to the old and new place names at the beginning of the article. However, the place names used in the rest of this article need to reflect the name usage at the time the event occurred. After the initial reference to name change the reader will easily understand the historical nature of the article.

IE: it is impossible for the storm to have affected Tuvalu and Kiribati because these places did not exist in 1972. The places affected were the Ellice Islands and Gilbert Islands. The usage of mixed names and or modern names is anachronistic, ahistorical, awkward and very confusing to the reader. (talk) 15:05, 14 September 2016 (UTC)
