A HEAVY rain alert remains in force for Vanua Levu, Taveuni and nearby smaller islands, and the Lau group.
And the government is urging the public, especially those in the Northern Division, to take seriously weather warnings as a low depression is forecasted throughout the week.
A government statement issued today said this is likely to intensify between tomorrow and Friday this week.
"The public is also urged to constantly monitor weather reports from media outlets as this is still the cyclone period," it said.
The statement also warned of localised heavy rain that may lead to flash flooding in these areas.
