Wet weather prompts safety advice

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

Update: 2:23PM FIJIS change in weather condition and the anticipation towards the busy weekend has led relevant authorities to advise public on the importance of keeping safe.

A NATIONAL Meteorological Service duty forecaster said the presence of a frontal system located in southern parts of the country is the reason for the group to experience rainfall and cooler temperatures.

Rain will start to clear on Thursday for the southern part of Fiji, but people still need to be prepared, the duty forecaster said.

Police spokesman Atunaisa Sokomuri said parents need to be alert every time and to always monitor the whereabouts of their children.

Mr Sokomuri said with the increase in the number of reports on missing persons, drowning and accidents involving school students, there needs to be programs and work at home to keep children busy.

The second term school holiday is usually full of fun and festivities but its also time of year when you need to be extra-cautious with your children.
