AUCKLAND, April 6 (AFP) - A tropical
cyclone, Sose, was declared Friday north of Vanuatu.
The Joint Typhoon Warning Center in Honolulu
said Sose, also known as TC 19P, was formed out of a two day old tropical
storm and was centred in the southern Coral Sea, just north of Vanuatu.
"TC 19P should drift westward over
the next 24 hours before showing a more southwestward track," the
Center said, adding the storm will bring 3.6 metre (12 foot) high waves.
It is currently producing maximum sustained
winds of 35 knots (64 kilometres per hour) with gusts to 45 knots (83 kph),
