Update: 1:08PM NATIONAL Fire Authority CEO John OConnor says his men in the Western Division are on standby and ready to assist if the need arises.

We are working with the District Officers in the respective centres and if there is a need to conduct evacuations or rescue services, we are ready, he said.

Mr OConnor said so far flooding has only been recorded in Nadi. However, NFA officers in Sigatoka, Lautoka, Ba, Tavua and Rakiraki are on high alert as heavy showers continue to pound parts of the division.
