Update: 11:39AM ALL schools in Navua have been advised to close as heavy rain pose flooding risks in most low lying parts.

School heads are urged to ensure students are provided the necessary assistance when travelling back to their homes.

A statement from the Ministry of Information urged authorities, including parents, to monitor the movements of the students outside school premises.

It said the Ministry of Education will further advise on the date to resume classes.

The weather office has advised that a flood warning is in force for all low lying areas in Navua, in particular those low lying areas adjacent to and downstream of the Waibogi and Sabata Station.
