Despite the heavy rain and flooding in Navua this morning, a couple took the initiative and offered to transport Year 12 students of Vashist Muni College in their fibre-glass boat across the flooded area so they could sit for their Year 12 external examination.
The couple, Kafoa and William Danford organised transportation for these students from the Raiwaqa ALTA area to school as it was heavily flooded due to heavy rain.
The couple’s daughter was also among the students who sat for the external exam today.
The students were later seen having breakfast at one of the teacher’s residence before they sat for their English paper.
Meanwhile, flash flooding is expected in low-lying areas around Suva, Nausori, Serua to Namosi including Navua, Tailevu, Naitasiri, Ra, Beqa, Vatulele, Kadavu and nearby smaller islands, the Northern Division, Lau and Lomaiviti groups.
The Nadi Weather Office says a trough of low pressure lies slowly moving over the group.
Expect heavy rain and thunderstorms over the eastern parts of Viti Levu [Serua-Namosi-Suva-Nausori-Naitasiri-Tailevu North -Rakiraki], Beqa, Vatulele, Kadavu and nearby smaller islands, Lau and Lomaiviti groups.
Also expect rain and thunderstorms in Southern Bua and Cakaudrove Provinces, Taveuni and nearby smaller islands.
Localised heavy rain may lead to flash flooding in low-lying areas.
