The National Disaster Management Office is advising the public to follow precautionary measures and not to attempt crossing flooded waters of unknown depth and secure belongings.

The continuous rainfall over a prolonged duration also poses risks of landslides and reduced visibility for those out at sea.

The Fiji Meteorological Service says that heavy rainfall is expected over Viti Levu and Vanua Levu in the next six to 12 hours.

Fijians are encouraged to call Police on 917 in case of an emergency.
