PEOPLE in the provinces of Ba and Ra have started storing water.

Ra provincial administrator Kelepi Kubunameca and his Ba counterpart Sitiveni Tavaga said they were on the road yesterday conducting routine checks.

Mr Kubunameca said many villages and communities had adhered to the public notice from the Water Authority of Fiji to boil all drinking water.

"We have been informed by the village heads and community leaders that they have already taken advantage of the abundant rain and all drinking water has been boiled," he said.

Mr Tavaga said the only major development in Ba and Tavua was the ongoing construction of pipes at Balevuto. We have received no water problem reports," he said.

"The only other issue from the heavy rain yesterday are the roads being closed off in Tavua at Dramasi settlement near Ratubuli Village and the Irish crossing at Naseyani which is still under water."
