PEOPLE living in flood-prone areas in the Western Division stand to benefit with the Japanese Government's provision of $153,230 for the installation of flood warning devices from Sigatoka to Rakiraki.

Commissioner Western Commander Joeli Cawaki said through Japan's Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects program, 32 communities would be better informed of waterway levels during periods of heavy rainfall.

"I would like to acknowledge the aid from the Japanese Government which result in the installation of 32 river and rain gauges that will complement and supplement existing systems in Ba and Nadi," he said.

In a statement, the Japanese Government said the project would include the publication of disaster management material, hosting of public awareness workshops and evacuation drills in the three provinces of Ba, Nadroga-Navosa, and Ra.
