Cyclones on the Fijis

Cyclones only occur occasionally on the Fijis. On average, they happen about 2 times a year. The hardest hit regions are Western, Central and Northern.

The typical cyclone season depends on the summer monsoon. In the months before (May to June) and after (October to November), the most severe storms occur.

The Fijis has certainly been affected by the foothills of several cyclones, but during the past 12 months no cyclone reached the inhabited areas on land.
