Tsunami Warning current for Fiji

From the Ministry of Information Facebook page warns that a Tsunami is on track to hit Fiji within the hour. It warns all Fijians to move to higher ground. I tried to post the link but it was in capitals and Trip Advisor rejected it.

I have my fingers crossed that it does not eventuate, nor damage this paradise that is already recovering from Cyclone Evan.

My parents are meant to be going on a cruise from Sydney to Fiji, little bit worried now. What happens to the people on the ships if a warning is out?

Im staying at the radisson now. The staff have been excellent They have asked everyone from the lower floors to go to reception as a precaution. It's also a high tide which wont help. I'll try to keep this updated.

Fiji on the western side has the advantage of the outer reef which hselps to break up sea swell, last time there were just lots of extreme tides during the day. Glad to hear it has been cancelled, everyone can relax. Usually if you are on a ship you don't notice any difference and are safe.

That is a ship out at sea..
