Very good, glad to hear it! I read some homes have lost roofs, but no injuries so far...hoping it stays that way!

It was moving so fast...I thought it would not be as bad :( I still haven't heard from my friend but I'm pretty sure that is a power thing more than anything else. I hope.

REMARKS:
141500Z POSITION NEAR 18.7S 178.9E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 04P (MICK), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 80 NM
SOUTHEAST OF NADI, FIJI, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 06 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST 06 HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES
SIGNIFICANT WEAKENING OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS DUE TO LAND INTERACTION
AND INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS). ANIMATED WATER VAPOR
IMAGERY SHOWS STRONG WESTERLY FLOW ASSOCIATED WITH AN APPROACHING
UPPER-LEVEL SHORT WAVE TROUGH, WHICH IS BEGINNING TO SHEAR THE DEEP
CONVECTION SOUTHEAST. THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS BASED ON DVORAK
ESTIMATES RANGING FROM 45 TO 65 KNOTS. THERE IS FAIR CONFIDENCE IN
THE CURRENT POSITION BASED ON THE RAPIDLY WEAKENING CONVECTIVE
SIGNATURE. TC MICK IS TRACKING ALONG THE SOUTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF
THE SUBTROPICAL STEERING RIDGE AND IS EXPECTED TO ACCELERATE WITHIN
THE WESTERLY FLOW. TC O4P WILL TRACK INTO A HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT WITH
STRONG VWS (GREATER THAN 50 KNOTS), COOL SST (LESS THAN 26C), AND
UNFAVORABLE OCEAN HEAT CONTENT. THE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO BEGIN
EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION (ETT) NEAR TAU 12 AND SHOULD COMPLETE ETT
BY TAU 36. NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE REMAINS IN VERY GOOD AGREEMENT
WITH THE FORECAST TRACK. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 141200Z
IS 14 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 150300Z AND 151500Z.//

Just heard from my friend. He's fine, the area didn't do so well as the center (as a cat 2) passed only a few miles from his location...lots of flooding and structural damage. He's zipping out toward the Marshall's in the next 24 hours. Thus endeth another storm tale, a good ending in this case! 8-)

thats good to hear. most of capital still without power except those with generators. business houses that announced that they would be open had to retract and told their employees to stay home as buses(main form of transport here) were still not running till roads are cleared of debris and fallen trees. luckily power came back for my area after only 1-2 hrs yesterday during the height of the storm. we were relatively lucky this time around, the backend of the storm was a non-event. Am worried next time people might become complacent and think its all over when the eye passes over like it did this time.(brunt of the storm was in the east and south semi-circle).

It sounds like you have much the same infrastructure as we do around here. It's frustrating every year and people get hurt and die needlessly because they don't realize the power of Nature.

I'm glad you came through relatively well, and thanks for keeping up with the reports...helped me a lot!
