Big hearts help

VILLAGERS of Naboutini in Serua on the Queen's Highway came out to assist pedestrians and vehicles when the water rose. Around midday on Thursday, the Naboutini River was under water. Semini Ketewai said the villagers braved the rain to assist vehicles cross the bridge. "We want to make sure these vehicles reached the other side without any problem," he said.

Tears for home

70-YEAR-OLD Timaima Navakula of Nasigatoka could not hold back her tears as she watched her home being destroyed by flooding on Thursday. Ms Navakula was one of 160 people evacuated to the Nasigatoka District School. "I can't remember how many times my home has been destroyed by flooding, but I pray this will be the last one," she said.
