Flood warning

Serafina Silaitoga
Sunday, April 06, 2014

PEOPLE living in low-lying areas of the Northern Division have been reminded to move to high ground if the water level rises as a result of heavy rain.

The plea from acting commissioner northern Alipate Bolalevu follows heavy rain warning in force for eastern Viti Levu, Vanua Levu, Taveuni and nearby smaller islands, Yasawa, northern Lau and the Lomaiviti group.

Mr Bolalevu said his team had also been monitoring the weather situation.

"We are working with the police and government departments and we are carrying out our own monitoring," he said.

"Right now, it's just a warning of heavy rain to the North and we are reminding people to move to high ground when the need arises. And it is also important for them to move during daylight because it will be much safer."

Mr Bolalevu also urged the people not to cross flooded creeks or rivers.

"We don't want any reports of fatalities as a result of unnecessary action and we hope people will be careful during this weekend of heavy rain."
