The Fiji Government has convened an emergency meeting to decide whether to declare a state of natural disaster.
Thousands of people have lost their homes and Fiji's sugar crop, which was recovering after a drought last year, has been severely damaged.
Police have now lifted restrictions on travel to the centre of Nadi, one of the towns worst-hit by the floods.
Rainfall reached record levels during yesterday's storm, influenced by Cyclone Dani, which is now battering Vanuatu.
Metereologists says there's still a rain band of cloud hovering over Fiji and more rain is expected.
