Be prepared

The cyclone season is now back with November starting tomorrow and the weather pattern has changed rapidly. More breeze and hotter nights can be experienced now. The citizens I hope are preparing for the worst since we all are aware of what devastation cyclone Winston did. Festive season is near also with many already preparing or planning for the holidays to come.

With our Prime Minster in COP 2017 as the president and he will be talking for all Pacific nations to our big brother nations on carbon emission reductions, we all must be now preparing for the cyclone season. Like in the past please stop the last-minute rush, with whatever penny you might have buy essentials for the cyclone and keep your loved ones safe. All our Fiji citizens always are on Fiji time and do the last-minute rush when the stakes are high. Refrain from it this time and be prepared for the worst.

Also stop cutting trees because it may help act as wind breakers near your homes, but trim those trees which are old or may pose a risk.
