The Nadi River will burst its bank soon if the heavy downpour continues, says Special Administrator Aisea Tuidraki.

Speaking to FijiLive, Tuidraki said the water level in the river currently stands at 5.6 meters (last hour) and will burst its bank if it reaches 5.62 meters.

He said if the water level in the Nadi River reaches 5.7 meters then some of the major roads will be under water and the situation in Nadi will worsen.

Heavy rain continues and the town has been closed for business.

The areas underwater include Nadi Market right up to the Catholic Church, Korociri Settlement, Nawatikuma Settlement, Saravi Settlement and Narewa Village.

St Andrews Primary School is now open as an evacuation centre.
