Mr Waqaicelua says an active convergence of low pressure located to the West of the Fiji group is slowly moving towards the country, bringing more heavy rain.

"The system is moving towards us and right now the whole of Fiji will be affected by rain," he said.

"Certain places received substantial amount of rainfall but we wont single out any particular area because the whole country is affected by the system."

He added a heavy rain alert has been issued by the weather office.
