Fiji's weather office predicts that up to seven tropical cyclones may affect several Pacific countries in the coming cyclone season and up to four of them may be severe.
In its 2022/2023 Tropical Cyclone Seasonal Outlook, the Fiji government predicts that the region will experience less than the annual average cyclone activity.
Fiji's National Disaster and Management Minister Jone Usamate announced there would be between five and seven tropical cyclones and that three or four of them may be severe.
The minister said at least two of those cyclones are likely to pass through Fiji during the cyclone season which runs from early November to the end of April.
The Fiji Meteorological Service also serves as the Regional Specialised Meteorological Centre (RSMC) and functions as the weather watch office for the region from southern Kiribati to Tuvalu, Fiji, Vanuatu, Wallis and Futuna and New Caledonia. It also provides forecast services for aviators in an area that includes Christmas Island (Line Islands), Tokelau, Samoa, Niue and Tonga.
