A warning of hazardous sea and weather conditions in Mauritius was issued by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office this morning.
A cyclone warning is in force due to Tropical Storm Bejisa which is set to hit the Indian Ocean island today (Thursday).
The cyclone season in Mauritius normally runs from November to May.
“Cyclones can cause extensive damage to property,” the FCO said.
“There is a well-structured system of phased warnings. You should follow advice issued by the local authorities.
“During a cyclone you are not allowed to leave your accommodation and car insurance policies often cease to be valid.”
