Update: 5:12PM ALL roads remain open in the North. Acting Commissioner Northern Alipate Bolalevu said no reports of flash floods have been received.

However, my team has been monitoring the weather. It has been good so far but we continue to ask people to take precautionary measures and move to high ground when the water level rises, he said.

People are to also take heed of weather warnings and store food and water.

We are also asking motorists to drive safely and take care while on the roads, especially along the Dreketi-Nabouwalu Highway and the Buca Bay road.

Fiji Roads Authority CEO Neil Cook said both roads would be slippery under the current weather conditions.

Mr Cook is urging commuters to use sound judgement if they have to travel.
