Adhere to warnings

COMMISSIONER Central Lieutenant Colonel Laisenia Tuitubou says it's important to protect children and be aware at all times of their whereabouts under the current weather conditions.

The call follows concerns about children frolicking in flooded creeks and rivers as rain continued to pour around them.

Lt-Col Tuitubou said despite warnings, many children in the Central Division were out swimming and playing in flooded places.

"It seems the announcement by the Education Ministry to close down schools was a delight for many of these children," Lt-Col Tuitubou said.

"During our field tour, we had to work with the police to chase them away from swimming in flooded places.

"It's the parents' duty to see that their children are taken care of, especially in such weather."
