The Pacific island nation of Fiji was hunkering down on Saturday as a formidable cyclone with winds of 300 km per hour bore down. Cyclone Winston was forecast to pass between the two main populated islands overnight. Many domestic and international flights had been canceled and authorities were urging people to secure their homes and not venture outside, AP reported. Fiji’s PM Voreqe Bainimarama said the island’s evacuation centers were operational and the government was prepared to deal with a potential crisis.
