Cook Islands Preparing for Cyclone


The Cook islands in the south pacific are getting ready for their third major storm in 14 days. The storm is a category 5 storm, and has been dubbed a "super cyclone", and is the highest category of storm. The storm has been named cyclone Olaf.

The storm has already brushed past the major population centers in Samoa, and American Samoa, but hit three of the Manu'a Islands in American Samoa, causing heavy rains and flooding, but no causalities were reported.

Cyclone Olaf has winds at the speed of 185 mph, (255 km/h), with gusts that reach speeds over 185 mph (300 km/h), and has caused 30 ft. (10 meters) waves in the costal areas. The storm is now heading towards the southern Cook Islands.
