Downgraded to tropical low

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (Radio New Zealand International, Feb. 25, 2009) – An area of disturbed weather from around the South Pacific island nation of Vanuatu consolidated into Cyclone Innis just before reaching New Caledonia on Tuesday night.

Only a small area near the center of circulation received tropical storm-force winds, and the main effect of Innis’ passage over the French overseas territory was widespread beneficial rain.

The storm began to lose force Wednesday morning as it encountered cooler waters to the south of New Caledonia.
