  • A new tropical depression named CODY formed over the South Pacific Ocean, west of Fiji, on 8 January and started moving south-east over the Ocean.

  • Media report, as of 10 January, one fatality in Tavua Town (northern Viti Levu) and a number of evacuated people in northern and western Viti Levu (particularly in the Nadi City area) due to floods associated with the passage of CODY.
  • On the forecast track, CODY is expected to continue southward over the Ocean as a tropical storm, well off the coast of Fiji, and it is forecast to dissipate on 14 January.
