Today's weather problems
Severe Tropical Cyclone Winston is heading westward and has already hit areas in the Lau group of islands as it tracks towards more populated areas.
The cyclone was about 175 kilometres north-east of Suva, the capital, at 1:00 pm (local time), travelling at 25 kilometres per hour
The storm was carrying average winds of 230 kilometres per hour, with gusts of up to 325 kilometres per hour, Fiji's Meteorological Service said.
Virgin Australia and Jetstar have both cancelled services in and out of the country.
Fiji's Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama urged Fijians to prepare themselves for what he described as a "terrible event".
"We cannot afford to be complacent," he said.
"And I am especially concerned that some people in urban areas of the country in particular do not appear to have heeded the warnings about the seriousness of the threat we all face."
Forecasters say there is a chance the cyclone will whip up very strong wind gusts around the capital.
"That is a possibility that we cannot eliminate right now, that is the reason for us issuing a hurricane warning in terms of swells and heavy rain," Fiji meteorologist Misaeli Funaki told the ABC.
End of quote;
Having said all this, now this question arise are these two things due to global warming, and if so, can humanity do something to minimize these terrible events, or is it going to become worse, before we try harder to do something about it.
This is a view of a simple minded old man, that would like to see something positive done.
I hope you will understand my point of view.
That is all for this post, see you next time when I find something else to say.
