Newsflash

Every year people in Fiji drown in floods. Most of these fatalities occur as a result of people making poor choices and entering the floodwater.

Speaking at last week’s SPC/SOPAC Division’s STAR meeting (17th-18th October) in Nadi, Dr Stephen Yeo, a flood risk management consultant from Australia said, “A disproportionately high number of those who have lost their lives in floods in Fiji are males, especially teenagers and young men aged 15 to 24 years, the median age being 23 years.”
