Fortunately only category 2

Fortunately cyclone Mal is remaining only cat 2 and passing without directly hitting islands. Even though it’s a small and rather weak system, the wave forecast on windy looks scary enough (see below).

The western side of Viti Levu will get some wind and there’s already flooding from the heavy rain ashore… Here in Suva no strong winds are predicted and the rain has passed, so we went to town to do some shopping today–business as usual everywhere.
The people on the islands in the Lau were waiting for rain with their water tanks almost empty, so it’s good news for them that the rain has finally arrived!
Let’s hope we won’t get anything worse than Mal this season (“mal” means bad in Spanish, linguistic pun intended ;-) )
