Update: 9:35AM THE sea-side village of Lovu on the Island of Gau is flooded this morning from the continuous downpour and also the increasing swells from the sea.

Lovu villager Tautusi Sovakatini said water was already in the village and waves from the sea were already lapping on the doorsteps of a house on the edge of the village.

"We are stuck between the rainwater flow from the land and the waves from the sea,'' he said.

"Rain started last night and has not stopped since and the waves are beginning to touch a house situated at the edge of the village."
