The break in torrential down pour which has caused servere flooding in Fiji may be over, at least temporarily.

Fiji interim Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama has launched a flood relief appeal to assist families affected by the flooding on the Western side of Viti Levu as more than 3,000 people remain in evacuation centres.

Neville Koop, a weather expert with Nadraki says Fiji is approaching an active period of weather with a cyclone likely to be formed in the Southwest Pacific next week.
