In December 2012, Fiji was in the path of destructive Tropical Cyclone Evan.  Rumoured to be one of the worst storms to come to Fiji in nearly 20 years, TC Evan was a category 4 cyclone by the time he reached us.

 

Weather reports were warning of 30ft or higher swells to pass through the Bligh Waters and through the passage between Viti Levu and Vanua Levu.  Wananavu and the Rakiraki area were saved by an amazing natural break water in the form of Cakau Batidra and Vatu Laca reef systems.
