Low-lying flats in Lautoka City were inundated with floodwaters in the past hour.

This was a result of the heavy downpour that started in the sugar city early this morning.

A number of creeks and rivers are underwater and some residents have had to cross the flood to buy basic necessities from nearby shops.

Floodwaters also interrupted businesses at the Subrails Furniture Centre Lautoka shop from midday today.

Employees are still trying to clean the debris from inside the shop.
