Two vehicles that were passing along Dilkusha Road yesterday afternoon were pushed down to the bank of the Rewa River due to the major landslide.

The heavy downpour in parts of Nasinu and Nausori yesterday led to drains being blocked causing roads to be flooded.

Meanwhile a flood warning remains in force for the low lying areas and areas adjacent to and downstream of Naqali River. A flood warning is also in place for low lying areas and areas adjacent to and downstream of Vitogo Village.

A flood alert remains in force for the low lying areas and areas adjacent to and downstream of Nausori Town.
