Rain continues in Fiji

8:51 am on 14 January 2009

It is still raining in Fiji where the town of Nadi is under 1.5 metres of water.

The town remains cut off and no one is allowed in unless they own a business.

Police now say eight people have been killed in the floods although not all of the bodies have been recovered.

The islands have been swamped by torrential rain since last Friday. However, a tropical weather system has not yet moved on, meaning more flooding is likely.
