River level rises

By Luke Rawalai
Friday, February 28, 2014

Update: 6:02PM THE Labasa river is rising quickly due to heavy rain in the interior of Suweni with water level nearly reaching the 2.5 meter mark which is also the critical stage.

Commissioner Northern Alipate Bolalevu said the level has reached warning stage.

Mr Bolalevu urged people in low-lying areas to make use of the daylight and move to high ground as more rain is expected from midnight.

Livestock can be moved to high grounds and people should keep updated with the weather bulletins as all evacuation centres in the division are currently on standby, he said.

The high tide is expected at 5pm this evening.
