Port Laguerre, New Caledonia, South Pacific, February 2021
The month of February starts up with a brief visit of tropical cyclone "Lucas". Well in advance, we find ourselves a sheltered spot in the mangrove to stay protected in the forecasted stronger winds.
Fortunately "Lucas" calms down before reaching New Caledonia, but still causes major floods and damages in the territory.
While this first cyclone of the season passes by, we feel both safe and cozy where we are in the sheltered mangrove.
