Cyclone Winston is the biggest, strongest Cyclone to hit in the Southern Hemisphere and it is pounding the crap out of Fiji! Wind speeds of 350Kph!

Wow, that sounds as if mother nature is not joking.
Here in Florida we have been getting tornadoes that are so massive and short lived. They are turning trucks over and causing damages to property in seconds. One past our house traveling so fast, ripping up trees.

It happened all so quickly, if it came directly for us, we would have had no time to do anything.

That's what I heard too Roggles. The experts are saying that as a Cat 5, Winston is a Cat. 5.5! Shocked

Hope your BIL is safe!

Climate change may see the introduction of new Category levels for storms powered by the temperature shifts

Yeah Len CC is part of the problem. Winston is also powered by the super el Nino too. Fiji as a bloody mess!

Our Met. Service is watching it closely as it could head down this way.

Down graded to a Cat. 3 now Roggles. Still nasty enough. The Met. Service here is watching it to see which way it's going to head.

Pleased to hear that your BIL is safe too.

Looks like it will arrive here at the weekend. Not much of a storm now, down graded to a Tropical Cyclone.

The North Island will get some rain apparently.
