Forecasters in Vanuatu say there is a good chance that a category two cyclone will become more powerful as it approaches the country.

Tropical Cyclone Jasmine, which formed near Darwin, is moving east at about 10 kms per hour.

The Vanuatu Meteorological Service says it is due to reach the island group on Wednesday morning and could affect the central or southern islands.
