Weather watch: Strong wind experienced

In an advisory issued from Fiji’s National Disaster Management Office (NDMO), Fiji should expect isolated heavy falls as the trough draws closer to the country which may result in flash flooding due to poor drainage. Picture: NASIK SWAMI/FILE

STRONG winds experienced over the country last night were caused by a trough of low pressure, says the Fiji Meteorological Services (FMS).
FMS director Ravind Kumar said a trough of low pressure that previously affected the Northern and Eastern Divisions had drifted Southwards and affected most parts of the country yesterday.
He said with the trough over Fiji, strong winds passed over the Fiji Group last night because of a tight pressure gradient created by the approaching low pressure from the west of the country.
