The Fiji metservice says last month was the wettest January in over a century for parts of Fiji.

The director of Meteorology, Rajendra Prasad, told the Fijilive website that some areas received three to four times their normal rainfall for that month.

Mr Prasad says last month's floods that killed 11 people was the worst natural disaster to affect Fiji since the drought of 1998.
