Based on past TC tracks that affected Fiji in seasons similar to what is being experienced in the country at present, most trekked through the western division. It will most likely follow the same track, however, the weather office also noted that tropical cyclones that follow the same track have also affected other parts of Fiji, therefore, all parts of Fiji are advised to be equally prepared for the forthcoming cyclone season.
