TC Ana dwindles, but cyclone season not over yet: Fiji Weather Office

Fiji’s weather office has cancelled gale and heavy rain warnings that were enforced for the group as Tropical Cyclone Ana weakened to below cyclone intensity.

However, the Fiji Meteorological Services calls on the public to remain vigilant as the country is still in the cyclone season.

TC Ana has dwindled, but Tropical Cyclone Lucas, although does not pose a danger to Fiji at the moment, is being monitored by the Fiji Weather Office.

Strong wind warnings and flooding alert are still in force for parts of the country in the aftermath of heavy rain brought on by TC Ana. These should ease, and the weather becoming fine later today, Fiji Met says.

“Tropical Cyclone(TC) Lucas lies to the north of Vanuatu and poses no direct threat to the Fiji Group at this stage. The Fiji Meteorological Service will continue to monitor this system.

“Heavy rain warning has been cancelled for the Fiji Group, nonetheless a flood alert remains in force all low lying areas and areas next to and downstream of Rakiraki, Waidina, Wainibuka, Wainimala, Waimanu, Rewa and all rivers of Vanua Levu. The water level is decreasing in these areas and alert is expected to be cancelled later today. 

“A flash flood alert has also been maintained for all low lying areas and areas next to small streams and creeks in Vanua Levu and low lying areas within Rewa Catchment and Rakiraki to Ba.”
