Flooding in Fiji… and Easter

By: standss , Apr 4th, 2012

A quick blog post to wish all readers a Happy Easter… and to thank you all for your support during the current natural disaster in Fiji. Many readers are aware that we are based in the beautiful tropical islands of Fiji.

Over the last week we have had very heavy rainfall that has resulted in severe flooding in many part of the country.  Thousands of people have been left homeless. We will be contributing to several charities over the next few weeks to assist those in need.

We could show you many pictures of the destruction but instead we’d like to share the following images which show the strong and happy character of the people of our country… even in the most difficult of times.

We were very fortunate here in Suva that we were spared from the worst of it. However the heavy rains and flooding brought down one of the main power supply lines to the city (most of our power comes from a Hydropower station).

The authorities are doing the best to rectify the problem and it is estimated that power will be back to normal early next week. This is taking time because the problem area has been difficult to access until now.

In the meantime, they are supplying power to Suva using backup generators. Unfortunately due to demand, power is rationed to different part of the city at different times.

As a result, we have not had a constant supply of electricity for the last few days.

I would like to firstly thank my team here at Standss who have helped out in any way they can to ensure that all customers keep getting the level of support that you are used to. Various team members have worked either from their homes or from other offices (depending on where electricity was available at the time).

I would also like to thank all our customers who have been patient in the few occasions that there have been delays.

As always… thank you for your support. We wish you the best for Easter and look forward to things returning back to normal next week.

I understand there has been floods inside the region a month or so ago, I know rumours of cholera plus other illness spreading. are these difficulties probably to solve? or are they exaggerated? any information is greatly appreciated.

  4. Hello Susanne,

    Fiji is as safe as it always was. Floods are uncontrollable in most cases but there is less chances of that now as we are out of the hurricane season which is normally from November to April.

    If you do happen to come down to Fiji, you can contact us at Standss and we will be happy to provide you infor about places you can visits.

    Regards,
    Mikir Bhavsar
