Samoa was hit by heavy flooding on Friday after days of rain.

For the past few days, many businesses and families have spent hours cleaning and clearing debris.

The Samoa Meteorology office in their update issued on Sunday morning said a cloud band with embedded rain and thunderstorms lies West near Savai'i island earlier due to a convergence zone.

The cancellation of the Wind, High Surf, and Coastal Flood Advisory reflect the current conditions. 

However, the Heavy Rain, Flood, and Marine advisories remain.

The potential impacts are heavy downpours at times, poor visibility, gusty winds, foggy, slippery roads over mountain passes and ranges, pooling near roadsides and waterways, and rough seas.
