Wet weekend ahead

Salaseini Moceiwai

IT'S going to be a wet weekend for people in the North as a heavy rain warning remains in force for Vanua Levu within the next 24 hours.

Meteorology director Alipate Waqaicelua yesterday said the centre of the low depression was located about 100km north of Labasa.

"The depression is expected to be associated with the heavy rain," he said.

"This will be the situation for the next 24 hours. The depression will possibly make its way out of Vanua Levu through the Lau and Lomaiviti groups.

"We expect the situation to ease on Sunday. For the Central and Eastern divisions, the heavy rain warning has now eased and water levels have continued to recede."

Mr Waqaicelua strongly advised people on Vanua Levu to take extreme caution as continuous heavy rain and flooding were expected in low-lying areas.

"Flooding is expected in flood-prone areas; we are appealing to people in the North to be on the lookout and take the necessary precautions."
