Fiji has been told to expect more heavy rainfall, flash flooding and strong winds over the next 12 to 36 hours.
Five days of torrential rain from a tropical depression has flooded towns and wiped out newly planted crops.
The tropical storm has changed its southerly direction and is heading directly for Viti Levu.
It is also moving more quickly.
The storm has set back the recovery of the country which is still reeling from a massive cyclone in February.
