April 6, 2016

The U.S. Embassy in Suva, Fiji, informs U.S. citizens residing in or visiting our consular district (Fiji, Kiribati, Nauru, Tuvalu, French Polynesia, and Wallis & Futuna) of a tropical cyclone forecast for Fiji.  Regional meteorological services predict there is a high risk that effects from Category 2 Tropical Cyclone Zena will directly impact Fiji Wednesday and Thursday.   Rainfall accumulation, strong winds, and increased flooding are expected.  A flood warning remains in force for low-lying areas in the Western Division, including Nadi.  All U.S. citizens living in or traveling to the area should monitor local weather reports, follow directions from local officials, and take other appropriate actions as needed.
