Nadi, Lautoka water levels recede
June 14, 2012 12:00:00 AM
The water levels in some parts of Nadi and Lautoka have started to recede from last night.
Divisional Planning Officer Luke Moreivalu said the flooding was caused by blocked drains in those areas.
Moreivalu said it was not a major flood and no damage reports have been received as this is always experienced by these areas when there is a heavy downfall.
Apart from Nadi and Lautoka, there is no other flooding reported from other villages and towns in the Western Division.
He said they are still waiting for an update from those areas.
Fiji Meteorological Services said the sun is slowly appearing in Nadi and Lautoka this morning.
A duty forecaster said there is no rain recorded this morning in Suva as well but should expect rain in the afternoon and the next few days.
