Heavy rain and flooding in Guadalcanal, Solomon Islands

Heavy rain in some areas of the Solomon Islands have resulted in flooding along the Guadalcanal Plains and around Honiara. 

Reports from the local media said that if the heavy downpour continues, some roads will be blocked, making it difficult for local farmers to reach Honiara with their local produces to be sold at the central market. 

Solomon Star reported that the situation has been getting worse as the water level of rivers starts to rise and invades roads and homes that displace people on low raised floor buildings and intercepting public roads from movement of vehicles and people. 

According to reports, many food gardens and homes have been destroyed and hundreds of people are affected.
