TC Keni: Water level continues to rise in Labasa River

Update: 3:05PM WATER level in the Labasa River has continued to rise with no changes since 8am today.

Divisional Planning officer North Uraia Rainima said the increased water level was a result of continuous heavy rain in the highlands of Labasa.

“We didn’t have any high tide this morning but the water level in the Labasa River was high and we hope people will move now to evacuation centres,” he said.

“We will continue to monitor the situation and our teams are already out in flood-prone areas to assist people.”
