The tide is high

Update: 5:29PM PEOPLE living in low-lying and flood-prone areas have been advised to be extra careful this weekend, a Ministry of Information statement said.

Commissioner Central Laisenia Tuitubou gave the advice as the country experiences spring tides in the next seven days, starting today.

Land and Water Resources Management senior engineer Frank Alhambra said the spring tide is the highest of all high tides.

LWRM earlier this week advised members of the public, especially those living along the Rewa River, to expect flooding should it continue to rain.

Mr Tuitubou has called on members of the public to display good judgement, stay alert and take necessary action when the need arises.

The high tide this weekend is expected to be as high as 1.8 to 2 metres.
