Fiji battens down for another blast




A tropical storm is bringing more high winds and severe rain to parts of Fiji.

Fiji’s National Weather Forecasting Centre (NWFC) has issued a strong wind warning for the western side of the main island of Viti Levu, the Mamanuca and Yasawa Islands, Kadavu and nearby smaller islands.


A state of emergency was issued in Fiji last week, after flooding and landslides killed at least six and forced at least 3,500 people into emergency shelters.



The NWFC has also advised the region can also expect heavy rain and squally thunderstorms in coming days and as a result, the possibility of some flooding of low-lying areas.

International flights into the country continue as normal, however domestic carriers including Pacific Sun advised that while Nadi-Suva flights continue to operate, some outer island flights may be affected by the current conditions.

A help desk is being established at Nadi International Airport to assist with all passenger enquiries.

Island Hopper helicopter services continue to operate, however Pacific Island Seaplane flights have been temporarily cancelled.

On the water, South Sea Cruises/Awesome Adventures has cancelled all full-day and half-day cruises into the region.

Captain Cook Cruises’ seven-day cruises and day cruises are continuing to operate as normal.
