11:41 am on 9 January 2009

Heavy rain in Fiji has caused floods in the west of the main island of Viti Levu.

The downpour has disrupted some roads and closed bridges.

There is flooding in Ba and in Nadi where the access to the tourist area of Denarau has been cut.

The risk of the low pressure forming a tropical cyclone has eased.
