A heavy rain cancellation notice was issued yesterday morning by the Ministry of Environment, Climate Change, Disaster Management and Meteorology’s forecasting team.
Solomon Islands Meteorological service’s heavy rain warning initially set for provinces like Guadalcanal, Malaita, Central, Makira, Renbel and Temotu was cancelled at 11am yesterday.
They also stated that the weather situation is that an area of convergence lies over Solomon Islands with a tropical low located South-southwest of Rennell Island in the Cora Sea with low pressure travelling at nine knots, expected to move south-westward.
Also stated in the cancellation issued is that associated heavy rain, showers as well as thunderstorms are slowly decreasing in pace.
To add on, an advice for people to avoid making an attempt to travel across flooding rivers and large streams was also made by the MET service.
Heavy downpour in the capital has caused much stress on the roads, with some feeder roads damaged making it risky for those who use them to travel.
Roads have also experienced more pot holes due to the rainy weather.
