Fiji on flood alert

A flood alert is now in force in Fiji for low lying areas and small streams adjacent to major rivers.

A heavy rain warning remains in force for the whole of the Fiji group as an active trough of low pressure is slowly moving over the country.

Media reports said as a result of the heavy rain all roads to Rakiraki are closed.

The town was badly hit by flooding in December when a tropical depression caused disruptions across much of Fiji.
