The Disaster Management Office in Fiji says more than three thousand people spent the night in evacuation centres and towns remain cut off after severe flooding on the main island of Viti Levu.
Again as it was in January this year, heavy rain has washed out roads and bridges leaving residents stranded.
The director of Fiji’s Disaster Management Office, Pajiliai Dobui, says several people had to be rescued from their homes yesterday.
He says they are trying to establish if the situation is worse than the floods in 2009, which were the worst Fiji had ever experienced.
“It’s worse than the January flood, we are trying to get the measurements and the date from the 2009 and compare which one of them is the worst one”
Because of the flooding the Fiji Government had sent out a travel warning to all tourists.
