April 20, 2019 12:48 pm
A heavy rain warning is now in place for Viti Levu and Vanua Levu and nearby smaller islands.
The Fiji Meteorological Services says this is due to a trough of low pressure with associated cloud and rain that’s slow moving towards the Fiji group.
People in the Lau and Lomaiviti group, Kadavu and nearby smaller islands are advised strong winds can be experienced.
Localized heavy falls may lead to flash flooding of low lying areas.
Mariners are also advised to take precautionary measures as moderate to rough seas are expected.
The Met office says due to the low pressure, rain will be experienced in most parts of the country until Monday.
