A heavy rain warning has been issued covering three provinces for 24th Tuesday – with risk of possible landslide and flash flooding in communities living near hill slopes and close to large rivers.  

The warning is in force and current for Makira, Renbel, Temotu provinces.

In its heavy rain warning number nine issued at 7am this morning the weather office says the general situation is that a trough of low pressure lies over northern parts of Solomon Islands.

It adds that associated cloud and heavy rain are still expected to affect Makira, Rennell & Bellona and Temotu provinces.

“Such localised heavy rain may lead to possible landslide and flash flooding over communities living near hill slopes, close to large rivers, streams and low lying areas.”

The weather office advises 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 travelling on road. Do not attempt to cross rivers and large streams of unknown depth.”
