The Director of the Solomon Islands Meteorological Services David Hiriasia says it is not normal for Solomon Islands to experience a cyclone and a tropical depression outside of the cyclone season.
The Met Director told SIBC News, the country has this year experienced one cyclone and one tropical depression outside of the cyclone season.
“Our cyclone season is from November to April and we are now outside the cyclone season as we are now in August but so far we have one cyclone and now the recent tropical depression which happened outside the cyclone season. Normally we do not have cyclones forming outside cyclone seasons except it’s not impossible but it’s very rear to such to happen.”
SIBC News understands the cyclone season for Solomon Islands extends from November to April each year.
