Weather Video: Cyclone Donna tracking towards New Caledonia & NZ


Severe Cyclone Donna was category 4 status on Monday morning and according to CNN has spiked at Category 5 later Monday morning.  

Donna has finally made her turn southwards and was picking up speed as she heads directly towards eastern New Caledonia.

Noumea (pop almost 200,000) is exposed to a direct hit from the centre of Donna in the next 48 hours, then the storm will weaken further and head towards northern New Zealand.

Most guidance suggests Donna won’t make a direct hit to New Zealand but she may still impact our weather with rain as it joins forces with another low pressure system around our part of the world.

It’s a busy week and we’ll have regular daily updates on Donna until Friday.
