Update: 3:40PM NADI District Officer Jiuta Waqavonovono has urged people living near or around flood-prone areas to take the necessary precautions in case of flash-floods.

He said people living in areas like Nawajikuma, Korociri, Sabeto, low-lying Nawaka and settlements such as Navakai to continue monitoring weather reports relayed on the radio.

"Nadi is a low-lying area and people living near drains and rivers know what to do and I reiterate for them to continue monitoring the weather reports," Mr Waqavonovono said.

"I still see people not preparing during the dry season and drains remain blocked as people continue to litter in drains and rivers."

The public are advised to contact the Nadi District Office on landline 6700-043 or fax 6700101. DO Nadi can be contacted on mobile number 9296599.
