Minister for Disaster Management Inia Seruiratu says their advice to people is do not panic and prepare accordingly following confirmation by the Fiji Meteorological Service that weather models are picking up a possible tropical low-pressure system next week.
Seruiratu says NDMO is always ready because preparation is critical but they are dependent on the advice they get from the Fiji Meteorological Service.
He stresses that people should only follow updates by the Fiji Meteorological Service.
The Fiji Meteorological Service says the location as to where the system may form is still uncertain at this point.
They further add that at the moment, no sign of this probable system has yet been identified on the satellite imagery.
The Met Service says once the system is identified on the satellite imagery then the national weather forecasting centre will start monitoring the system which is most probably next week.
It adds for now since it is still almost a week out, weather models tend to have a lot of uncertainties in their prediction.
The Fiji Meteorological Service says they will continue to monitor the weather and will issue warnings and advisories if and when necessary.
