On June 21, side effects information from the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) reveals that regional and international weather forecast models indicate that a major storm system near New Zealand is pushing heavy swell waves up towards the tropical Pacific Islands today.
This could cause coastal damage in Fiji, pills Tonga, and Cook Islands, and Niue. Significant swell waves are also expected in Samoa, American Samoa, Tokelau, Wallis and Futuna and Tuvalu.
Waves of over 4 metres or 13 feet are possible around Fiji and Tonga. The arrival of the swells will reportedly coincide with large Spring tides and a full moon this weekend.
OTV’s call to the Palau National Weather Service in Koror reveals that Palau fortunately has not received any alerts indicating that our region will be threatened by the upcoming swells.
Other locations in the Pacific region are encouraged to contact their local meteorologists to find out more information.
