Expect more bad weather: DISMAC

The DISMAC office is advising the public that a Heavy Rain Warning remains in force for the whole of the Fiji group.

A low pressure system lies slow moving to the far west of Fiji. An associated active trough of low pressure with cloud and rain lies slow moving over Fiji and localised heavy rain may lead to flash flooding.

The public is advised to continue listening to the radio for further information regarding the heavy rain warning.

DISMAC is also urging the public to take advantage of this time to make preparations to secure property and measures for the safety of families and businesses. This includes ensuring that that there is an appropriate supply of food and water as well as other basic resources.

Those in flood prone areas are reminded to be aware of the nearest Evacuation Center should the need to evacuate be required.

All drivers must take precaution while driving in low lying areas for possible flood during the night.
