A flood alert is now in force for the low lying areas and small streams adjacent to major rivers for the whole of Fiji.
In a release from the Fiji Meteorological Services, a heavy rain warning remains in force for the whole of Fiji.
Tropical Disturbance 04F has moved closer to the group and is expected to gradually deepen and move southeast towards the group from later today.
Director for the Fiji Meteorology Services, Ravin Kumar says flooding is more than likely given the volume of rain that has fallen over the last 48 hours.
He adds that should the depression develop into a cyclone, it’s expected to be a category 1 which could see damaging winds up 153 km/hr.
Currently, a strong wind warning remains in force for all land areas of Fiji.
