A strong tsunami warning  is in force for all low lying coastal areas of Fiji and the Pacific.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre in Hawaii has issued the warning following the massive earthquake that struck Chile last night.

The quake which measured 8.8 on the richter scale and claimed at least 147 lives in the South American country has triggered strong tsunami warnings throughout the Pacific.

It is estimated the tsunami could arrive in Suva at around 10am today.

However it could reach the Lau Group an hour earlier.

People living in low lying coastal areas especially within 10 meters of normal sea level are advised to take precautions and move to higher ground.

The National Disaster Management Office is urging people living along the coastal areas  to take safety measures.

DISMAC has also sent text messages to mobile phones issuing the warning.

Specific Attention to the coastal areas of: Northern and Eastern Vanua Levu, Udu, Cikobia, Lomaiviti Group, Lau Group, Kadavu, Northern and Eastern coast of Viti Levu, all people living in these low lying coastal areas have been urged to move to high ground.

It is estimated that the Tsunami Wave will enter Fiji Waters at approximately 8.30am today.
