Cyclone Funa no longer a threat to Vanuatu

10:27 am on 18 January 2008

Tropical Cyclone Funa is reported to have ceased to threaten Vanuatu.

The latest report we have says the cyclone's centre is located 230 KM east of the shepherd islands or 260 KM east northeast of Efate.

TC Funa has moved south southeast at 22 km/hr in the past 12 hours, and is expected to maintain a south southeasterly direction as it moves away from Vanuatu.
