A TOWN was closed and people living in low-lying areas were advised to move to higher ground as heavy rain continued to lash the country last night.

While access to Rakiraki Town from the Lautoka and Suva ends were stopped last night, the Nadi Weather Office warned of flooding in low-lying areas and areas adjacent to the town.

The Nadi Weather Office report said an intense trough of low pressure with associated cloud and rain remained slow moving over Fiji last night and it is expected to affect the country today too.

Considering the adverse weather conditions, the National Disaster Management Office yesterday advised parents and guardians to keep a close watch on their children and keep them away from flood waters.

It advised mariners not to go out to sea during this adverse weather and also asked motorists to exercise caution when

travelling on the roads.
