Weather Alert: Mariners advised to excercise caution

Sunday, February 04, 2018

Update: 6:35PM THE National Disaster Management Office is advising mariners to exercise caution while travelling out at sea.

This is in light of the strong wind warning in place for Vanua Levu waters, Northern Lau waters and the Vatu-i-Ra passage. 

A statement issued this afternoon by the NDMO says rough seas may be experienced in the areas affected by strong winds.

"Accordingly, travelling out in small fishing boats such as punts or fiber glass boats should be minimized.

"Mariners are reminded that the safety of individuals must be prioritized at all times.

"Practicing caution and refraining from sea travel can save lives"

NDMO has advised the general public to heed continuously to the heavy rain warning and alerts that still remain in force for the Fiji Group.
