Flash floods cause havoc in Fiji


Friday, Mar 30, 2012

PACIFIC HARBOUR, FIJI - Flash flooding cut highways and forced evacuations in Fiji Friday, with residents sheltering from rising waters on rooftops as authorities scrambled to find rescue boats.

Heavy rains caused rivers to burst their banks in the west of the main island Viti Levu, taking water levels higher than those experienced during a six-day deluge in January which claimed 11 lives, meteorologists said.

Police said they were not aware of any deaths in the latest disaster, which cut off the town of Nadi, home to Fiji's international airport, as well as other centres including Ba, Lautoka, Rakiraki and Sigatoka.

Most flights to and from Nadi were cancelled, national carrier Air Pacific said.

The disaster management office, Dismac, said a "massive" number of people were stranded on rooftops awaiting rescue and appealed for anyone with a boat to help relief efforts.

"We've got a lot of reports of people on rooftops, it's quite a massive number," Dismac director Pajiliai Dobui told reporters.

"If people in these areas have boats, we're asking them to make them available, as the little we have is not enough."

Dismac said it had opened 11 evacuations centres. No figures detailing how many people were sheltering in the centres were immediately available.

The National Weather Forecasting Centre predicted the rain would continue until at least Sunday, accompanied by strong winds on Saturday.

Every know and then there comes few years which are similar and we start thinking ok world is coming to an end. In overall scheme of things it jus reflects a random non-random occurence and nothing more.
 
Having said that yes population increase will gradually affect the environment. The scale of its impact is yet to be determined. I don't think it has any connections with disasters etc.

Yes no end of the world but only more water. Also it never rains but pours. Flash floods are happening in many places.
My main concern is on Global Warming. But the winters seem more severe too.
