A mother and her two children of Salababa Road in Waila in Nausori are grateful to officers from the Fiji Police Force who rescued them from rapidly rising flood waters last night.

Seini Ledua says they live in a double storey house and feared the worst for her family when flood waters reached the top of the first floor.

Ledua says it was a scary situation especially for her children aged 10 and 14 who were too frightened to move out.

Ledua and her children were rescued after the NDMO was notified of a social media post by her brother.

Divers from the Fiji Police Force were then deployed to rescue them.

She says she cannot explain how she felt when she saw help arrive and has thanked the officers for the assistance.

Ledua and her children are currently in an evacuation centre.
