Fiji warned residents to brace for an onslaught Saturday as a category five super-storm bears down on the Pacific island nation, with international flights cancelled and evacuation centers activated.Severe tropical cyclone Winston, with average winds of 220 kilometers (136 miles) per hour and gusts of up to 315 kilometers per hour, was forecast to hit the main island Viti Levu overnight Saturday, according to the Fiji meteorological office.Winston has been moving around the South Pacific for a week, skirting around Vanuatu and Tonga and has previously taken aim at Fiji before veering away.Cyclones are common in the South Pacific and their impact is notoriously difficult to predict, with major storms capable of causing major devastation but sometimes blowing themselves out with relatively little damage.
