THOSE living in low-lying areas are being urged to secure livestock and be prepared to evacuate to higher ground if there is a need to do so.

And the government is also urging people to take warnings seriously and to take all necessary precautions and make preparations in light of adverse weather warnings.

The Fiji Meteorological Service has warned that a trough of low pressure is moving towards the country and bringing with it strong winds and heavy rain.

The system is expected to produce strong winds and cause flash flooding beginning this afternoon.

The Ministry of Information issued a statement encouraging the public to make use of the fine weather conditions to carry out necessary preparations.

Permanent secretary Sharon Smith-Johns said the public needed to take weather advisories seriously.
