Warning issued of Heavy Rainfall for all of Samoa

07 November 2017

The Samoa Meteorology Office has issued a "Heavy Rainfall Warning" for all of Samoa. Continuous heavy rainfall will lead to flood in all low lying areas including areas close to rivers and streams.

We therefore, advise the general public: DO NOT cross rivers, streams and fords if flooded; boil drinking water before consumption; ensure you have enough water around your home for use in case of water service disruption; ensure you have candles/torch in case of power disruption; do not allow your children from playing in flood water; if you live close to rivers and streams, monitor river levels and evacuate if necessary.
