The Cook Islands Meteorological Service will open its doors to the public today to commemorate this year’s World Meteorological Day.

Cyclone no danger to us

Monday March 12, 2018

Apart from some storm surges (high waves) towards the middle of next week, the Cook Islands will not face any danger from Tropical Cyclone Hola.

The intensifying Tropical Cyclone Gita which was yesterday classed a category four cyclone is moving away from the Cook Islands.

A great weekend to stay indoors

Monday February 12, 2018

Big swells and continual rain and cloud over the weekend made for miserable conditions over the weekend. On Friday, most of the action centred around the port, where the order was made to boat owners to get their vessels out of the water or out of the harbour by 5pm.

A significant five metre swell generated by a storm surge caused by Tropical Cyclone Gita could hit Rarotonga by midday today.

High seas threaten harbor

Wednesday February 07, 2018

Sea swells could force the closure of Avatiu Harbour this week, raising questions about the fate of the Tiare Taporo, which remains moored at the wharf despite promises from its owners that it would be back in service early this year.

Depressions pose no threat

Tuesday February 06, 2018

Despite the presence of two tropical depressions in the Southwest Pacific this week, the Cook Islands are not at risk from a cyclone, says the Met Office.

While sky gazers across the world were treated to a “super blue blood moon” early yesterday, residents of Rarotonga missed out on the opportunity as excessive cloud kept the rare occurrence out of their sight.

The Cook Islands is out of any danger that could potentially be caused by the first cyclone for this season.
