Cyclone danger warnings still continue for Fiji

TROPICAL Cyclone Evan has passed Fiji, however authorities are still warning of strong winds and large swells this morning.

Fiji was yesterday battered by ferocious 270km/h winds, which uprooted trees and homes, ripped roofs off buildings and caused widespread power and water outages.

The Fiji Ministry of Information reported a total of 8016 people were sheltering at 137 evacuation centres, with 3646 in the north, 356 in the east, 2021 in the central division, and 1993 in Rakiraki.

The ministry said there were no reports of fatalities at this stage.

The Fiji Meteorological Service said the cyclone had weakened to a category 3 and was centred about 210km south of Nadi at 7am, and is moving south-southwest at 15kmh.

It is forecast to lie about 290km south of Nadi by 4pm today.

Flood warnings are in place for Mainimala, Wainibuka, Waidina, Rewa and Navua rivers, and low lying areas of Nausori.

With more rain to come, the Wainibuka River is 7.2 metres above critical.
