Posted by feww on February 20, 2016

Powerful Cyclone packing destructive winds moves towards Fiji capital, Suva

WINSTON, a category five storm packing destructive winds, is impacting Fiji’s biggest islands as it moves towards the capital, Suva.

Fijian authorities have issued a curfew for the entire Fiji, effective 6:00pm local time, said a report.

“This latest measure is designed to restrict movement and ensure the safety of all Fijians. Only essentials services will be permitted to travel,” the government said in broadcast.

The storm has already lashed the outer islands of Fiji after pummeling Tonga twice earlier in the week.

WINSTON, packing sustained winds of about 290 km/hr ( max. gusts of 330 km/hr) was located about 175km NNE of Suva at 04:00 UTC, moving west at 25 km/hr, and generating MSW of about 15m.
