Rarawai Cemetery Bridge, Toge Bridge, Veisaru backroad Bridge and Matawalu village in Ba are flooded due to continuous rain since last night.

Raju Gosai of Ba says it has been raining heavily since last night.

He says Ba Town may get flooded during the next high tide.

Jitendra Reddy who is travelling to Lautoka has confirmed that Vunato Settlement in Lautoka is also flooded.

The Nadi Weather Office says a Heavy Rain Warning remains in force for the whole of the Fiji Group.

They say this will bring occasional rain, heavy at times and few thunderstorms over most places, with isolated heavy falls that could lead to flash flooding of low lying areas.

A Flood Alert that was in force for low lying and flood prone areas adjacent to and downstream of Wainibuka, Wainimala, Waidina River and Rewa River is now cancelled.
