The system has been tracking south-south-west at 20km/h for the past 12 hours and has moved a little further away from the group.


The river at Boca, Bulileka in Labasa, swift flowing with lots of debris.

However, it is expected to make a turn and will start moving towards the group from tonight into early tomorrow morning.

Singh says the system is intensifying and is expected to become a category two cyclone in the next few hours.

He says it is expected to continue moving in the south-south west direction in the next six to nine-hours.

“A tropical cyclone warning is also now in force for the whole of Fiji group. As we see in the coming days or hours the system as it starts to track towards the Fiji group, there is uncertainty with the track. The best that we are going for is that the center is expected to pass over Vanua Levu however there is a possibility it could also go a bit south of Vanua Levu meaning close to Viti Levu as well. It will then take a southerly turn and pass very close to Kadavu.”

Singh is urging all Fijians to be prepared as there is a lot of uncertainty associated with TC Mona’s track.
