Cooks could bear brunt of cyclone

Wednesday January 08, 2014

Tropical Cyclone Ian is still lingering to the north of Tonga but has altered its course, meaning the Cook Islands could be in for nasty weather this weekend.

Cyclone Ian is continuing to move slowly away from Tonga towards Fiji but looks likely to come within 300km of the Cook Islands by this weekend.

Heavy downpours over the weekend gave Rarotonga more than a quarter of its average monthly rainfall.
