Cyclone Donna covers Vanuatu's vast archipelago.

Vanuatu's capital of Port Vila escaped any major impact overnight as the storm is continuing on its south-easterly path. It was moving southeast at about 12km per hour. New Zealand's MetService says the Fijian weather agency is responsible for the cyclone and there is no expectation the storm will be upgraded in the its next update due around 1pm.

Severe Tropical Cyclone Donna is now tracking south east at about 15km/h and this slight eastern track is better news for Noumea.

Models were still differing but for now it looked like the remnants of the cyclone would interact with a trough approaching New Zealand from the west.

Obama Warned Trump Against Hiring Mike Flynn
Trump also addressed remarks from former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who testified alongside Yates on Monday. By defending the executive order , she would have had to argue that it wasn't about religion, which wasn't true, Yates argued.

"Sanma Province and Malampa province they've experienced a little bit of destructive gale force winds but at this stage it is far west of Port Vila", Timothy said.

The severe cyclone is still at the second strongest level, a category four, as it heads towards New Caledonia's outer islands - it is expected to make landfall late on Tuesday.

"Today and tomorrow we're seeing a few showers across parts of the North Island but largely dry".

The storm is said to be the worst to hit any South Pacific island this year, recording average wind speeds of 260km/hr.

Former Trump adviser 'could be blackmailed by Russia'
Flynn's conversations with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak caught the attention of Trump's own transition team. Based on this information, Pence repeated the false account in a televised interview with CBS.

Schools in New Caledonia have closed for a public holiday on Monday and will stay shut on Tuesday.

New Caledonia's largest city (with nearly 200,000 people) was in the firing line for Donna yesterday, but the slight track east is likely to see the worst of the weather further away and out at sea. However Donna is expected to remain a small but potent storm as it tracks into the New Zealand area on Friday, then it may pass to the east and rapidly deepen into a new system.

Stephen Meke, a senior forecaster at the Fiji Meteorological Service told Reuters it was "very unusual" to see such a powerful storm well after the summer months have passed, but there was not enough information to determine if climate change was a reason.

The official cyclone season in the Pacific ended on April 31.
