Water levels continue to rise in Labasa Town.
Widespread flooding occurred this morning after the Labasa River burst its bank late last night.
Flood waters entered most shops after Main Street was flooded.
Several other streets in Labasa Town are also underwater.
The Labasa Market including the parking lot and the nearby shops are also flooded.
Hospital Road and the Botanical Gardens which lie beside the Labasa River are also under flood waters.
Vulovi is also flooded after the Qawa River burst its banks.
Flood waters have also entered some classrooms at the All Saints Secondary School while Vunivau is also underwater with the bridge at Vunivau Village collecting heavy debris.
Vatunibale Road is now a sea of murky brown water, inaccessible to all traffic.
This means there is now no access to Bulileka, Low Cost, Boca, Boubale, Urata, Lovelove, Dreketilailai and Lekutulevu.
