Low-pressure system prompts heavy rain warnings

Fiji’s weather office has issued heavy rain alerts and warnings with the potential to cause flash flooding of low lying areas.

 Motorists are also advised to drive with care as heavy rain can reduce visibility on roads.

 According to the Fiji Weather office, the wet weather is the result of a low-pressure system that is slow-moving to the west of Fiji.

 Heavy rain warning remains in force for Vanua Levu, Taveuni and nearby smaller islands, Lau and Lomaviti Group. A heavy rain alert is in force for the rest of Fiji.
