Fiji’s National Weather Forecasting Centre (NWFC) has issued a strong wind warning for the western side of the main island of Viti Levu, the Mamanuca and Yasawa Islands, Kadavu and nearby smaller islands.
They also expect heavy rain and squally thunderstorms in coming days and as a result, the possibility of some flooding of low-lying areas.
With the death toll now at 8, this is very sad for the locals of Fiji who live in lower lying areas.
Tourism Fiji, Fiji’s government tourism body, has advised that the Fiji’s tourism sector has taken careful steps to ensure the well-being of all guests, staff and property.
International flights into the country continue as normal. Guests are still holidaying as normal and continue to enjoy Fiji Hospitality rain, hail or shine. Domestic carriers including Pacific Sun advised that Nadi-Suva flights continue are still operating, but some outer island flights may be affected by the current conditions.
