DISMAC: Move to higher ground

By AVINESH GOPAL
Saturday, May 17, 2014

Update: 12:21PM PEOPLE living in low-lying areas have been urged to move to higher ground because of the high possibility of flooding.

The National Disaster Management Office made the request a short while ago in light of the heavy rain warning issued by the Nadi Weather Office for the whole of Fiji.

NDMO director Manasa Tagicakibau advised people to start making preparations for all appropriate precautionary measures that need to be taken as flooding could be experienced in low-lying areas.

"District offices and members of the police force are currently monitoring the situation and DISMAC officials will provide regular updates," he said in an Information Ministry statement.
