Update: 6:00AM THE Acting Commissioner of Police Ravi Narayan is urging members of the public to take precautions in light of the current weather conditions being faced across the country.

"As the heavy rain warning remains for Fiji, we are humbly requesting members of the public to cooperate with the Fiji Police in ensuring their safety and that of their loved ones," he said in a statement released a short while ago.

"Those living in and around areas where a flood warning has been issued are advised to take all necessary precautions and move to higher ground and avoid moving if and when flooding occurs.

"Parents and guardians are also advised to keep a close eye on their children.

"It has often been the norm for children to be seen swimming in flooded areas and especially near drains which is a serious safety threat," the statement said.

Motorists have also been requested to drive carefully in light of the slippery road conditions and avoid taking the risk of crossing flooded roads.
