Off the Hook?

Weatherwatch NZ says: The monster storm, which is more aggressive than Hurricane Katrina
when it made landfall near New Orleans, is now tracking southwards which
means it should now spare the main island of Fiji including the capital
Suva and holiday resorts near Nadi.

WeatherWatch’s head weather analyst Philip Duncan says the
storm looks incredibly dangerous.  "The eye of the cyclone is clear to
see on the satellite maps.  Tomas is an aggressive storm that is
unfortunately very likely to cause widespread damage to the north
eastern Fijian islands"

The strongest winds are gusting up to 270km/h. 

Tomas is currently a weak Category 4 cyclone and overnight will most
likely become a strong Category 3.  "There is very little difference
between a weak cat 4 and a strong cat 3.  Either way this is a very
serious tropical storm".

But fortunately, not for Suva this time, if it stays on its current track.
