Weekend of rain

PEOPLE are being advised to take precaution this weekend following heavy rain recently being experienced in the Central Division.

Meteorology Department director Alipate Waqaicelua said heavy downpour was expected in the weekend and potential flooding in Navua, Waimanu and Rewa Rivers.

"We're looking at this for the whole weekend and there's going to be some heavy falls, particularly over the East part of Viti Levu," Mr Waqaicelua said in an interview.

"There are low-lying areas from Navua to Wainadoi towards Lami and some of these places are now under water. Navua River is rising steadily and rivers in the upper catchments of the Navua River are steeply rising and there's still lots more rain falling and we expect the rain to persist."
