Fiji’s Meteorological Center (RSMC) in Nadi is sounding the alarm for a flood warning for the Wainibuka River and down the main Rewa River.
A flood alert also remains in force for the Wainimala River and down the main Rewa River.
The situation at hand is a result of a slow-moving trough of low pressure hovering over the region, bringing with it heavy rain across Fiji, and impacting various parts of the country. The forecast suggests that these weather conditions are expected to persist until tomorrow.
Already, low-level roads near small streams, culverts, and flood-prone areas in the upper catchment of these rivers have been affected by the rising floodwaters. The threat of further inundation looms large, and residents are being urged to exercise caution and take necessary precautions.
