A curfew is likely to be placed in Nausori as water levels continue to rise in the Rewa River.
This has been confirmed by National Disaster Management Office Director, Akapusi Tuifagalele.
In a media briefing this afternoon Tuifagalele said the town will be closed if flood waters continue to rise.
He urged those living beside the river and in low lying areas of the Rewa Delta to move to higher ground immediately.
Tuifagalele says police and military officers are currently monitoring the situation in Nausori and a decision on curfew will be made soon.
Meanwhile preliminary assessments reveal the Agriculture Industry has suffered a damage of about fifty-two thousand dollars while the Water Authority of Fiji has suffered one point eight million dollars of infrastructural damage.
