A heavy rain warning and a strong wind warning remain in force for Lau and Lomaiviti Group, Vanua Levu, Taveuni and nearby smaller islands, the eastern part and interior of Viti Levu which includes Korovou, Nausori, Rewa, Naitasiri, Suva through to Navua.
Nadi Weather Office Acting Director Viliame Vereivalu says this is due to a tropical depression that is currently east of Cikobia and is expected to track over the Lau Group before exiting Fiji waters on Saturday.
He says that the potential for the tropical depression to develop into a tropical cyclone in the next 24 to 48 hours is moderate.
Localised heavy falls may lead to flash flooding of low lying areas.
A flood alert remains in force for all low lying areas adjacent to and downstream of Korovou and Naqali and Rewa.ADVERTISEMENT Listen to the latest news on our 5 radio stations Legend FM, Viti FM, Radio Sargam, FM96 and Navtarang.
