Residents in the Central Division should expect wet weather for the next three months.

However, the Fiji Meteorological Service (FMS) has warned of an “elevated risk” of flooding in the division.

“The ground is already quite saturated with water.

For the past three to 12 months there has been a trough of heavy rain and it has been predicted to continue in the coming days,” it said.

Members of the public are advised to remain updated on the latest weather information and take alerts and warnings seriously.
