Flood-prone areas put on alert
Warnings of flooding were issued yesterday for the low-lying areas particularly about the southern and eastern parts of Viti Levu and Vanua Levu. The warning was issued after an active trough of low pressure with associated cloud and rain drifted east across the Fiji Islands. The forecast for midnight tonight for the whole of the Fiji group would be rain and it is expected to be heavy at times. Today, however, has been a fine sunny day in Suva for the most part of the day.
