Update: 3:37PM THE Fiji Meteorological Service says a flood warning previously in force for the Navua, Wainimala, Wainibuka and Waidina Rivers is now cancelled.

However, a flood alert remains in force for low-lying areas adjacent to and downstream of the Navolau weather station and for low-lying areas adjacent to and downstream of the Waibogi station to the Sabata station.

Tropical Depression 15F centre is located about 100 km north-northeast of Labasa. It is moving east-northeast at 10kmph.

Associated cloud and active rain bands will continue to affect the northern parts of the group.

People living on Vanua Levu, Taveuni and nearby smaller islands, Lau and the Lomaiviti group should expect periods of heavy rain and squally thunderstorms.

Strong clockwise winds with average speed of 45 kmph and momentary gusts to 70 kmph are also expected.
