Cyclone Gita has caused a maximum level 2 alert in parts of New Caledonia. This means the islands' residents have to stay indoors until the alert is lifted. Mr Diver said people were remaining vigilant and in Noumea the strongest impact of the cyclone was expected to be felt this evening. Noumea is where the airport hub for Air Loyauté is situated. This has caused Air Loyaute, which flies to the Loyalty Islands to cancel today's flights. Air Caledonie put on additional flights to transport passengers from the Isle of Pines, where the airport is now closed, while Noumea's Magenta Airport remains closed.
