Update: 6:45PM POLICE were out in force around the west warning residents to remain vigilant and be ready to move to high ground should high tide and continuing showers cause waterways to burst their banks.

In the last few hours, officers visited Vunato in Lautoka and Tagitagi near Tavua to alert residents.

The Fiji Times news team witnessed teams of officers advising residents in these areas to be prepared to move and to ensure that children were being closely monitored at all times.
