Update: 2:05PM FAMILIES living in low-lying areas are worried about the continuous downpour being experienced in the north.

Bouma residents in Labasa have begun preparing themselves for flooding possibility.

Paulini Waqaniboro of Bouma Settlement said the road leading up to the settlement was flooded during the weekend and they could not sleep well because they feared the worst.

"Whenever there is heavy rain here in Labasa, this is one of the areas that get flooded easily and we always move in together at the centre during the continuous wet weather," Ms Waqaniboro said.
