Yachts in Fiji preparing for an expected four cyclones this season

From Morning Report, 6:50 am on 2 October 2020

The head of Fiji's Port Denarau Marina says they are now full with more than 40 foreign yachts, all seeking to batten down their hatches ahead of the cyclone season.

The yachts would normally head south out of the seasonal storm zone, but they've been prevented from leaving the Pacific because borders are closed in New Zealand and Australia.

Cynthia Rasch told RNZ reporter Tracy Neal weather experts are warning up to four cyclones could hit the Fiji area this season, which is causing a few challenges for the marina.
