Heavy raining warning remains


The nation-wide heavy rain warning still remains in force for the country.

That was according to the Solomon Islands Meteorological Service while issuing a heavy rain warning number ten at 7:00pm on Thursday.

The Met office says the warning was a result of a slow moving Tropical Low is currently located southwest of Rennell Bellona Province and links to another Low now located further to the southeast away from the Solomon Islands.

“Associated Heavy Rain is still expected to affect the Solomon Islands. Such localised Heavy Rain may lead to landslide and flooding over communities living near hill slopes, close to large rivers, streams and low lying areas.

“People living near hill slopes, close to rivers, streams and low lying areas are therefore strongly advised to take safety measures to avoid danger and loss of lives and property.

“Motorists are also advised to use extreme caution when traveling on the roads. Do not attempt to cross rivers and large streams of unknown depth,” it warned.
