TC Keni: Possibility to intensify to Category 2

Update: 11:51AM TROPICAL Cyclone Keni could track closer to Fiji than originally forecast, says Fiji Meteorological Service director Ravindra Kumar.

He also says there is a possibility that the system could make landfall as a Category 2 storm.

“We will know more about TC Keni’s track as it draws closer by tonight or tomorrow,” Mr Kumar said.

“The effects of wind can cause damage to well-built framed homes, which can blow away roofs, trees uprooted and branches being broken, severely damage weak structures, totally destroy shallow-rooted crops, cause loose objects to fly, damage electricity lines and poles, (and) damage water infrastructure.”
