Tropical Cyclone Yasa is now over open waters between Fiji and Vanuatu. We expect it to move towards us from tomorrow.
We should all prepare now for heavy rain, damaging winds, coastal inundation, and flooding across the country.I urge communities to use this time to trim tree branches, clean drains, board up homes, prep emergency kits, and take other steps to keep your homes and communities safe.
He mentioned let’s remember Cyclone Harold. At the last minute, it ramped up in strength and ended up being worse than predicted. Do not be caught off guard by this latest storm. Know the location of your nearest evacuation centre.
If you can, use “Find my EC” by texting “EC” to 132877 using viber, messenger or sms. Otherwise use the NDMO website or call 3319250. As we see flooding throughout the country, everyone should stay out of floodwaters, especially children.
These waters are deadly, unpredictable, and can carry debris that can maim or kill. We don’t want to see reports of young Fijian’s lives lost due to a lack of supervision.
While we are a day away from the storm’s arrival, I urge our fisherman: Please do not go out fishing – this is not the time to test your skills at sea. Listen to warnings and wait until you are given clearance to do so – no fish is worth the risk.
Stay safe, Fiji.

Fiji: Climate Change Bill passed into law
The Climate Change Bill has been passed by parliament this afternoon, marking a historic milestone in Fiji’s global fight.
It is a comprehensive piece of legislation setting Fiji’s long term framework for mitigating the effects of climate change.
It also mandates all government ministries action plans and national policies to be mindful of climate change, sets up clean energy requirements and introduces carbon trading.
Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama while supporting the Bill highlighted that denying climate change will not achieve any good for the people of Fiji.
“Whether we accept it or not, it will fundamentally change Fiji, how is up to us. Either we will be destroyed by stronger storms and swallowed by the rising seas, or we will change ourselves to be more resilient.”
Minister for Climate Change Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum pointed out the Climate Change Bill presents new opportunities for landowners to enter into the carbon trading market as a source of revenue.
The Bill has been described as a blueprint for a carbon neutral and climate resilient Fiji.
