Tropical Cyclone expected for Fiji heading towards Rabi, Taveuni

Friday, March 12, 2010
A depression near Samoa is now expected to develop into a Cyclone before it will approach the Fiji group in the next forty eight hours or so. The director of meteorology Rajendra Prasad says the system has become stationary to the northwest of Samoa but may start to move southwest towards Fiji soon.

Prasad says some parts of Fiji are expected to feel the impact in the next twenty four to forty eight hours."It starts off with of course island north of Vanua Levu, Rabi, Kia island and some other smaller islands and so and in the northern Lau group Taveuni they will be affected first followed by Lomaiviti group, the northern part of Viti Levu the central division and than later the western division than southern part of the country, system approaching from north or northeast basically that is the sequence of the effect, off course if the system approaches from the west it affects the western division first so in this case northern division to be affected first.

Prasad says the weather office will issue a cyclone alert for whole of the Fiji group later today.
