Flood alert cancelled

February 6, 2018 11:08 pm

The flood alert that was previously in force for areas downstream of Vatukacevaceva and Dreketilailai station is now cancelled.

However, flood alert remains in force for the low lying areas, small streams for Vanua Levu, Northern and Western parts of Viti Levu.

The Fiji Meteorological Services says a dominant moist northwesterly wind flow prevails over Fiji with the trough of low pressure just to the west of the country.

Meanwhile, Tropical Depression 08F lies slow moving to the south of Fiji and is moving south away from the group.

Another significant Tropical Disturbance, TD07F, currently to the far northwest of Fiji near Vanuatu is expected to move towards Fiji and may gradually intensify into a depression and possibly affect the group from Thursday.
