Six dead in Fiji floods

A clean up operation is underway in Fiji, as the death toll from floods rose to six. A family of four was killed by a landslide triggered by heavy rains. Fiji TV showed roads caked in mud in the township of Ba, where at least some shops had managed to re-open. In the village of Moto, people were left stranded after a landslide brought debris onto a river and destroyed a bridge. A state of emergency was declared in the western part of Viti Levu, Fiji's largest island. Around 3,400 people have been displaced by the floods, and many are now staying in evacuation centres. Weather forecasters are saying the rains are set to continue for the coming days, alerting the country to flash flooding and landslides. Michaela Cabrera, Reuters.
