Cyclone season 2017/2018: how to listen

10:55 am on 22 December 2017

Throughout this cyclone season Radio New Zealand Pacific [RNZI] will be operating its CYCLONE WATCH schedule.

If Cyclone Alerts are issued for South Pacific countries, RNZI will broadcast hourly updates of these bulletins if necessary, and whenever the situation changes. These will be heard either just before the top of each hour or following news bulletins at the top of each hour.

We will do our best to keep listeners informed of all weather news and of future directions or damage reports as we receive information. Our information comes from the Nadi Met Office in Fiji and from the New Zealand MetService. In addition, we receive weather bulletins direct from the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Samoa and Tonga Meteorological Offices.

You can also follow us on twitter @RNZPacific and on Facebook @RNZPacific
