Floodwaters force 200-plus northern commuters back home

Update: 11:35AM MORE than 200 daily commuters, including students, returned home this morning because they could not cross flooded waters at Soasoa Rd in Labasa.

Commuters travelling from Nagigi, Korotari, Soasoa, and Naleba waited for more than three hours hoping flood waters would recede but that did not happen.

Flood waters covered a stretch of about two kilometres with the water level at knee depth for some areas.
