Update 2016-02-15: According to forecasts, tropical storm Winston in the Pacific Ocean is expected to move towards Fiji in the coming days. The storm could hit the southern Lau islands as a cyclone bringing wind speeds of up to 102 km/h, in gusts of up to 130 km/h (equivalent to a category 1 hurricane) starting Tuesday (16 February) and could develop into a cyclone bringing wind speeds of up to 157 km/h, in gusts of up to 194 km/h (equivalent to a category 2 hurricane) until Saturday (20 February). Heavy rain is already to be expected.
The Hurricane/Typhoon/Cyclone can cause uprooting of trees and damage roofing material. Water level may rise up to 2.5 meters. Due to heavy rainfalls and rise of water level, coastal flooding and local inland flooding (and landslides) can be expected. Inhabitants of coastal regions and low-lying areas are advised to take shelter.
