Five men are counting their lucky stars after they swam safely to shore when their boat overturned at sea.
Commissioner Northern Jovesa Vocea says the men, from Druadua Village in Macuata were diving in the waters off Mali Island when their boat capsized.
Vocea says when this happened, the men started to swim ashore to Mali Island.
They are now sheltering at Mali Island, waiting for TC Winston to pass.
Vocea is urging the public especially fishermen to adhere to precautions and warnings issued by authorities and not to venture out to sea during this weather.
