STRONG winds experienced over the country last night were caused by a trough of low pressure, says the Fiji Meteorological Services (FMS).
FMS director Ravind Kumar said a trough of low pressure that previously affected the Northern and Eastern Divisions had drifted Southwards and affected most parts of the country yesterday.
He said with the trough over Fiji, strong winds passed over the Fiji Group last night because of a tight pressure gradient created by the approaching low pressure from the west of the country.
