Tropical Cyclone Winston grinds over Fiji

(CNN) – Tropical Cyclone Winston has made landfall on the island of Viti Levu in Fiji, said CNN meteorologist Derek Van Dam.

The storm, which is the most powerful ever to hit the island nation, was tracked moving through the narrow waterway ocean in between the country’s main islands of Viti Levu and Vanua Levu.

“Batten down the hatches. It’s going to get worse before it gets better,” Van Dam said.
