So often we constantly hear updates of where the eye of the cyclone is located or moving. This mode of communication best suits mariners. Location codes like degrees, West south-west and the likes are unknown to the majority of rural dwellers and some urban dwellers, like myself, who struggle to figure out where the eye of the cyclone is. It’s time to modify this to the benefit of all cross sections of Fiji and the Pacific. By now the names of all the villages and settlements in Fiji are well known to all forms of the media – radio, TV, mobile phones and newspapers. When the path of the cyclone is known or expected, the names of all the affected villages should be announced so that all those directly impacted will take heed accordingly, especially the young, old and vulnerable.
