Staff at the Niue Meteorological Service are taking part in a training program to make their forecasts and warnings more user friendly.

The aim is to provide clearer information without too many technical terms so that local communities know how best to prepare for adverse weather.

Salesa Nihmei is the Met and Climate Officer at SPREP, the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme, and says it's vital that Pacific communities get information about adverse weather conditions as soon as they can.
