Cyclone Gene Causes Havoc in South Pacific

South Pacific Weather News
In Solomon Islands, residents in Guadalcanal are being warned of the dangers of rising flood waters and the possibility of crocodiles, after heavy rain in the area at the weekend.

The flooding, caused by heavy rains from Cyclone Gene, has caused damage to family gardens, bridges and roads in many parts of Guadalcanal.

A team of assessment officers from the disaster office spent Sunday wading through muddy roads to get to villagers affected by Saturday's floods.

The assessment officers say major suppliers of market produce to the capital, Honiara, have been affected by the flooding.

They have also warned of the threat of crocodiles that may have been swept into residential areas by the rising waters.
