This plan defines responsibilities and analyses local capacities and capabilities to manage mitigation projects.

1. TROPICAL CYCLONE 07P (HETA) WARNING
01 ACTIVE TROPICAL CYCLONE IN SOUTHPAC
A small cyclonic system has formed about 300 nautical miles northwest of Apia or 100 nautical miles southwest of Tokelau. It is moving towards the north-northeast but is predicted to curve toward the south in the next few days. Countries or Island Dependencies which could be affected include Samoa, American Samoa, Tokelau, Tonga and Niue. The storm is small in intensity although slow strengthening is predicted. At this point damage to any of these areas would likely be minimal to locally moderate given the small size of the storm, confined to crops and insecure dwellings.
