PEOPLE living in low-lying areas that are experiencing heavy rainfall are being urged to take necessary precautions as flash flooding could occur.
This was the warning issued from the Fiji Meteorological office in Nadi yesterday afternoon.
While brief interludes of sunshine brought people out and about in the Sugar City, intermittent downpour sent citizens scurrying for the nearest shelter.
On Wednesday, the Fiji Meteorological office in Nadi said the wet weather was expected to ease by yesterday afternoon but issued another forecast in the afternoon saying that sunshine could be expected tomorrow afternoon.
According to the weatherman, a heavy rain warning remains in force for southern Lau, Yasawa and the Mamanuca Groups, Viti Levu, Kadavu and nearby smaller islands.
People in these areas could expect occasional rain, heavy at times and isolated thunderstorms with showers expected to ease later today.
Meanwhile, Lautoka special administrator Praveen Bala said despite the wet weather, Churchill Park was ready for the rugby union tussle between the Flying Fijians and Scotland.
"Lautoka is blessed to host one of the country's best International Rugby Board rugby venues and we're proud to host the Scottish team here."
