Authorization Basis: Météo-France is the advisor of the Government of New Caledonia for the monitoring the atmosphere and the upper part of the ocean, for the safety of people and property. In this framework, it issues to authorities and general public of new Caledonia weather awareness maps, called “Vigilance” with related safety recommendations elaborated by the authorities. “Vigilance” covers three hazards: strong wind, heavy rainfall-thunderstorm and strong waves. There are four levels of "Vigilance" awareness: red in case of very severe weather, orange, yellow, and green if no particular vigilance is required. In connection with those levels of awareness, the New Caledonian authorities trigger alerts and take safety actions. More over "Alerte cyclonique" warnings are triggered in case of danger of tropical cyclone, those "Alerte cyclonique" are decided by the New Caledonian civil security authorities (in liaise with the meteorological advice of Meteo-France).
