Parts of Ba Town are still flooded this hour but we have received confirmation from the Ba Town Council that flood waters are starting to recede.

Photos posted by the Ba Town Council on its Facebook page shows flood waters reaching parts of the town area.

We have been told by the Ba Town Council that the photos were taken between 5pm to 5.30pm today.

A flood warning is now in force for low lying areas near Rakiraki Town, Tavua at Nasivi and Ba at FSC.

There is a severe flood alert in force for low lying areas near major rivers in Western Viti Levu.

The rivers at risk of flooding are the Tuva River, Kubuna River, Nawaka River, Nadi River, Sabeto River, Vuda River, Vitogo River, Teidamu River, Ba River, Nasivi River, Yaqara River, Nakauvadra River, Penang River and Elevuka Creek.

Please prepare and remain on high alert if you live near these major rivers in Western Viti Levu.

The Weather Office says currently water levels at all these rivers are below the flood alert threshold but with more rain expected the risk of river banks breaking and flooding is high.
