    • The worst affected areas are the northern island of Vanua Levu, and parts of Viti Levu, the largest of Fiji islands and where the capital Suva is located.
    • “In Labasa most of the crops were damaged due to the flooding, they also experienced some strong winds. We have heard that a lot of families have moved to the evacuation centres. Most of the roads were flooded yesterday in Vanua Levu and Vitu Levu as well today. Some of the bridges were damaged, especially in Vanua Levu. And we have just received a report that the river level in Nadi town is rising,” a local meteorologist said.
    • The Fiji Meteorological Service forecast heavy rain to continue over much of Fiji until Wednesday, causing more flooding in low-lying areas throughout the country, a report said.
    • “People living along coastal areas that have been flooded will have to be very careful. During the high tide in the evening, water levels will rise. It they need assistance they should contact the authorities available. If they should move, I suggest they start moving now because the next high tide will be at 6 in the morning. Now both times for these high tides occur in the dark and it will be dangerous if they don’t start moving now.”
