Authorities Issues Warning on Weather

The Solomon Islands has been experiencing inconsistent weather patterns in the recent weeks.

As such, warning has been issued by the Meteorological Service to ship owners and people travelling by outboard motor to the outer-islands to listen out to and take heed of the changes in the weather pattern.

Acting Director of Meteorology of the Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Meteorology, Mr. Lloyd Tahani says that a marine forecast warning boats and people of travelling because of strong winds and high seas is current.

Mr Tahani says there is an advisory for winds of 25 to 30 knots for seas around Makira, Temotu and Rennell Bellona Provinces, while seas around other islands should be experiencing 15 to 25 knots with a general east to south east trade wind flow persisting over Solomon Islands.

The Acting Director is urging people and ship-owners to listen to the radio for further advice on the weather situation.
