FIJI could experience one or two tropical cyclones (TCs) this season and residents should take heed of all warnings and be prepared should the natural disasters strike.
This warning was issued by the director of the Fiji Meteorological Service Alipate Waqaicelua yesterday.
Apart from the TCs that were expected to directly affect the country, Mr Waqaicelua said seven to 10 TCs were also expected to occur within the Regional Specialised Meteorological Centres and Nadi's tropical cyclone centre area of responsibility.
"For Fiji, one to two tropical cyclones could be expected this season, of which one may reach or exceed Category 3 status.
With the genesis area near the Dateline, there is a high probability that the TCs will approach Fiji from between the northeast and northwest."
