NASA Worldview, Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS)

Two people have died and more than 2,000 evacuated after Tropical Cyclone Sarai brought strong winds and heavy rain to south-east Fiji.

The National Disaster Management Office (NDMO) in Fiji reported 1 fatality in Kadavu, while one person drowned in flood waters in Vunidawa in Naitasiri District on Viti Levu, Fiji’s main island.

Fiji Roads Authority said that 1 road was closed in the Northern Division, 21 roads closed in the Western Division and 15 roads closed in the Central Division.

The cyclone did not make landfall but its close proximity to Fiji brought strong winds and heavy rain, with Kadavu and Lau islands thought to be hardest hit. Fiji Meteorological Service reported gusts of around 150 km/h and rainfall of over 120mm in 24 hours in some areas.

As of 30 December the number of people in Evacuation Centres had fallen to under 500. NDMO said it will deploy its response team to the islands of Kadavu and Southern Lau once Sarai had moved away.

Fiji Meteorological Service said that, as of 30 December, Sarai was located about 65km east of Ono-i-Lau or 210 km south-southeast of Kabara. Cyclone Sarai is expected to exit Fiji water by 31 December and move towards Tonga.

More #Floods After #Storm Hits South and West, #France

France Floods 15.12.2019

A powerful storm hit parts of southern and western France late on 12 December. Winds of up to 174 km/h caused major damages. Heavy rain and flooding was reported in some areas. At least 2 people have died and thousands left without power.

One person was swept away by flood waters in Espeins in the Lot-et-Garonne Department. The department was placed under red alert for floods after the Garonne river rose rapidly. Government of the department said that as of 15 December, at least 35 people have been evacuated, 17 rescued and dozens of roads closed.

Heavy rain triggered flash floods and landslides that cut road access to Gourette and Artouste in the Pyrénées mountains.

Pre-emptive evacuations were carried out in Landes on 13 December after the Gaves de Pau and Oloron rivers threatened to overflow.

One other person died and 5 others were injured as a result of wind damage.
