After half a day of heavy downpours, the areas in the Apia Township that are vulnerable to flooding are under water once more.

Starting from Pesega, if you are heading to town, roads have been flooded and families living nearby rivers and streams are urged to be prepared.

The flooding comes as a heavy rain warning has been put in place for Samoa’s low lying and vulnerable areas.

“A convergence zone lies within the vicinity of Samoa,” an update from Samoa Met Office says. 

“Expect occasional rain with heavy downpours at times. Gusty winds during showers.

“The aforementioned convergence zone will remain within our vicinity till Sunday, it’ll then migrate South-westwards as the ridge of high pressure will bring improving weather conditions as of Monday of the new week.”
