A high pressure system to the far southwest of Fiji is gradually moving east and is expected
to generate and direct moderate southerly swells towards Fiji waters which can cause coastal
inundation over the southern coastal parts of the group.
Therefore, a Coastal Flood Alert is in force for the coastal areas of the southern parts of Viti
Levu (from Natadola to Coral Coast through to Pacific Harbour and to Suva), southern coastal
areas of Mamanuca Group, Beqa, Kadavu, Vatulele, Moala Group, Lomaiviti Group and the
Southern Lau Group.
People living in these concerned areas, are advised to exercise extreme caution and to be
vigilant of occasional sea flooding during high tide especially on Thursday and Friday.
For those using the Queens Road along Coral Coast particularly the stretch along Vatukarasa,
should remain alert for occasional over wash of roads especially during high tides.
Hazardous breaking waves, rip current and other dangerous wave conditions are risky for
swimming, fishing, boating and other sea activities. Vessel operators are advised against
navigating in these conditions.
Meanwhile, a moderate to fresh southeasterly wind flow prevails over Fiji waters.
Consequently, a Strong Wind Warning remains in force for Southwest Viti Levu Waters,
Kadavu Passage and Southern Lau Waters.
The strong winds together with rough seas increases the risk of sea flooding.
The current situation is closely monitored. Members of the public are advised to remain
updated with the latest weather information.
