Huge swells struck roads, villages and hotels along the Coral Coast leaving people dashing for high ground this morning.

The swells according to the Fiji Meteorological Office, is a result of a storm surge from the huge swells generated by the low depression hovering over the Fiji group at the moment.

The swells left debris along the Cuvu Back Road outside Sigatoka (Old Queen’s Highway), sweeping belongings out to sea and temporarily closing the crossing from mainland to Yanuca Island where the famous Fijian Resort is situated.

Fiji Rugby Union Under-20 coach Inoke Male, who took his team for a morning training session at the Nakalevu Grounds in Cuvu said the huge swells swept away part of his team’s training gear leaving them dashing for higher ground.

“Its not as big as what we would imagine a tsunami would be, but it gave us a jolt and just made us move quickly to high ground,” Male told FijiLive.

“The ground is close to the sea, but the bridge leading to the Fijian Hotel is temporarily closed as workers try to clear the debris ” he said.

At Momi Bay, Seashell on Momi Resort worker Sainiana Vono said that while the swell was huge this morning, it was just a normal day for the guests and locals as it was nothing like what happened in Cuvu.

She however said that surfers staying at the hotel talked about huge swells at one of the world’s top ten reef breaks, Cloudbreak and the other breaks close by including the Namotu Lefts and Wilkes Passage.
