Marshalls and Micronesia battered by storm generated waves

Thursday 12 March 2015 | Published in Regional


MAJURO – The Marshall islands have battered by big waves and heavy rain generated by a tropical disturbance over 300 kilometres south of the islands.

Weather officials say high winds and waves, coupled with the high tides could cause inhabited islands to be inundated with seawater. A visiting yacht was blown onto a reef in Majuro on Tuesday evening, but no one was injured.

The storm was on track to hit Kosrae and Pohnpei in the Federated States of Micronesia tomorrow. The Guam weather office warned Marshall Islands residents of “dangerous surf” throughout Thursday, and said that hazardous surf will continue in Kosrae through

to the weekend.
