MILITARY officers are on standby for the tropical depression which has flooded most of Fiji.

Republic of Fiji Military Forces chief operations officer Lieutenant Colonel Amani Suliano said their service would await the advice of the National Disaster Management Office.

"50 per cent of military officers around the country are on standby for the current weather situation. It's not officers from the Central Division only but those from the West and North as well and we will await the NDMO's call for assistance," he said.

Navy head Commander John Fox said they had their own contingency plan, however, in such cases, the NDMO would make the call.

"But in response to the national one, we will await any NDMO tasking," Cdr Fox said.
