Move to higher grounds, police urge

By FELIX CHAUDHARY
Thursday, January 30, 2014

Update: 5:05PM PEOPLE living in or near flood-prone areas in the Western Division are urged to move to higher ground while there is sufficient daylight.

Police chief operations officer ACP Rusiate Tudravu said moving at night put people's lives at risk.

"Of particular concern is the fact that people tend to leave matters to the very last minute and with high tide forecasted later this evening, people are requested to move while there is sufficient light to do so," ACP Tudravu said.

"Moving at night can be an added safety threat which is why people must take precautions now."
