In light of the current weather situation as advised by the Nadi weather office, we request members of the public to take heed of the advisories and take the necessary safety precautions.

The heavy rain alert is bound to cause flash flooding in some areas and your  safety and that of your loved ones must be prioritised at all times.

“Children’s activities must also be monitored and as to date we have recorded 11 drownings involving children under the age of 10 years,” Police ACP Rusiate Tudravu said.

As of today the drowning death toll stands at 23 compared to 36 for the same period last year.

And with 11 of that figure involving children under 10 years of age, parental supervision is extremely vital.

“We have also noted with concerns the activities of our youth who would often resort to swimming in flooded areas as well as the dangerous habit of jumping off bridges.

“Common sense must prevail and this must stop. We cannot be everywhere to monitor these things from happening and will need everyone’s support in policing this issue.

“Please work with us in ensuring that you and your loved ones are safe during this weather spell and adhere to the advisories issued for the sake of your safety.”
