Cyclone Alert: Cyclone Donna

On May 5th, a disturbance near Vanuatu intensified and became Cyclone Donna. Her intensity rapidly increased,developing into a massive Cat 5 – as powerful as it gets. Thankfully, it was well away from any land. Over the next few days, Donna tracked between Vanuatu and New Caledonia, before heading south towards New Zealand.  While weakening rapidly, Donna converged with a separate low crossing the Tasman and formed a new system that impacted northern NZ.

While it brought heavy rain and wind, it wasn’t worth the chase.
