Update: 10:51AM PEOPLE living in Lautoka have been warned to batten down as extremely damaging winds would bear down without warning.

The warning from the Fiji Meteorological Service came after revelations that Rakiraki was battered with 110 kilometre an hour winds at approximately 10am today.

The weather office in Nadi also reported that Yasawa-i-Rara was hit with hurricane force winds of approximately 130km an hour at approximately the same time.

Commissioner Western Commander Joeli Cawaki is already calling on people living in low-lying areas in the Western Division to immediately move to higher ground.
