Heavy rain floods parts of Apia

Parts of the Apia Township were flooded on Monday and yesterday after a period of heavy rain.  

The rain was the result of an active convergence zone that had been in the vicinity of Samoa. 

The convergence zone resulted in a flood advisory for low lying areas, including some villages on the outskirts of Apia.  There was also a Coastal Flood Advisory issued. 

Here are some photos from around the Apia Township.
