With the Pacific Games just three weeks way, chief of the MET Office says they cannot predict what the weather is like in terms of a possible cyclone but reminds everyone to prepare as “we are in a wet season.”
Director of Meteorological Services, David Hiriasia in response to a question on the question of what is the likelihood of a cyclone during the Pacific Games next month said the outlook for the Pacific Games is: “We are in a wet season and anything could happen.”
“At the moment, there is no indication whether there will be a cyclone that will happen but all we can say is just be prepared as we are in a wet season,” said Hiriasia.
The MET Office predicts between one to two cyclones for this wet season which starts in November to April next year.
The MET Office, however, says it can predict the possibility of a cyclone during the games 10 days before it starts.
The Pacific Games starts on November 19 and runs to December 2 bringing together 5,000 athletes to compete in 23 sports.
