Tropical Cyclone Ana upgraded to a Category 3 system this morning.

The Nadi Weather Office says the centre of TC Ana has moved past Kadavu but people living in Kadavu and nearby smaller islands, Viti Levu and Vanua Levu can still expect some strong winds from TC Ana as it is a very big system.

TC Ana is moving south at about 13 kilometres per hour.

It is located 150 kilometres West South-West of Matuku.

The Nadi Weather Office says TC Ana is expected to weaken as it moves further south and leaves the Fiji group later today.

TC Ana has left a trail of destruction in Viti Levu, Vanua Levu and Kadavu.

There was heavy flooding in many areas in Viti Levu and Vanua Levu.

Entire settlements and villages were covered with flood waters leaving many stranded and getting the help of police officers to move to evacuation centres or high ground.

Flood waters are just starting to recede this morning in many of these areas.

Many homes with weak structures have also been damaged while trees and power poles were brought down as people experienced strong to damaging and then destructive winds.

In Kadavu, we have already received reports of damage to homes in some villages.
