Fiji's western division is currently experiencing adverse weather conditions as an active trough of low pressure with associated cloud and rain remains slow moving over the group.

The current weather pattern is due to a  tropical depression that is slowly moving south of Fiji Islands.

The Nadi weather office in its latest bulletin has forecasted periods of heavy rain and squally thunderstorms over most places and has also warned of flooding of low lying areas.

A strong wind warning remains in force for Vanua Levu and nearby smaller islands, Taveuni, Lau and Lomaiviti group. The warning is now in force for the rest of the Fiji group as well.

Meanwhile, rain has eased in the northern division and flood waters are receding as authorities remain on standby to assist affected families.

Power supply has been disrupted while flights have also been cancelled in light of the current situation in Vanua Levu.
