A tropical cyclone named Judy, currently a category one system, has formed near the Solomon Islands.

Tikopia and Anuta Islands are two isolated Islands in the Temotu Province along the forecast impact area. The Population of Anuta around 300-400 people and Tikopia around 1500 - 2000 people.

Other Islands are at risk also as most are coastal communities and likely to be impacted by storm and storm surges.

The Solomon Islands has a history of being hit by large storms with Tropical Cyclone Zoe, the second-most intense tropical cyclone on record within the Southern Hemisphere hitting in December 2002 and Cyclone Pam in 2015
