11 roads in the Central, Northern and Eastern divisions have closed due to the flooding brought about by Tropical Cyclone Mona.
The Fiji Roads Authority is urging members of the public to remain vigilant in light of Tropical Cyclone Mona.
Chief Executive, Jonathan Moore says some roads and low-lying areas continue to be in danger of flooding as rainfall continues in most parts of the country.
“Our staff and contractors are prepared and on standby to work around the clock to care for those affected by the flood waters and make access for emergency and recovery services.”
Moore says several roads are being monitored for closure and they will continue to issue alerts and warnings as required.
