Wednesday, October 11, 2017

Update: 5:34PM THERE are four to six cyclones predicted to hit the Pacific region in which two would possibly pass through Fiji in the upcoming cyclone season from November 2017 to April 2018.

This was revealed by Permanent Secretary for the Ministry of Rural and Maritime Development, Disaster Management and Meteorological Services Meleti Bainimarama at a press conference in Suva today.

"For Fiji, one to two tropical cyclones are predicted to pass through Fiji waters this season with one anticipated to reach category 3 or above," he said.

"Therefore it is critical that communities across Fiji act responsibly and pay close attention to all weather forecast, warning and advisories issued Fiji Meteorological Services, National Disaster Management Office and the government of Fiji."
