WEATHER Warning - Tropical Cyclone
Category 3 Severe Tropical Cyclone EVAN has become almost stationary close to Samoa for the past 24 hours as it intensified and has inflicted much damage, and regrettably the loss of life also, to this island country.
Today TC Evan will start to accelerate and move west-southwestward along a course that will take it directly towards Taveuni(as shown), reaching Fiji waters Sunday night.
Forecasts continue to indicate that the eastern half of Fiji is at risk of a significant tropical cyclone on Monday. All communities, but especially those in the east, including Vanua Levu, Taveuni, the Lau group and Lomaiviti, and eastern Viti Levu, should take advantage of the fine weather conditions now to undertake any outside work necessary in anticipation of deteriorating weather in coming days.
Please remain alert and responsible. Listen for warnings and advisories from local authorities.
