Residents defy police orders to watch floods

Update: 12:05AM POLICE and military officers were still moving people off the streets of Nadi Town at 6.30pm.

This despite an order that the town close down at 6pm.

West police spokeswoman Naina Ragigia said it was disturbing to see that people were still flocking to the Nadi river to watch the rise of the water level.

She said even a few shop owners were still operating despite the restrictions imposed.

"It seems some do not realise the imminent danger the rising water levels poses, we ask that all just practice basic common sense now and listen to the advise being given by authorities," Ms Ragigia said.
