Fiji declares parts of main island a disaster zone

SIX people were today confirmed dead as parts of Fiji's main island Viti Levu continued to be battered by flooding and heavy rain.

Prime minister of the Pacific nation, Frank Bainimarama, launched a flood relief appeal as parts of Viti Levu were officially declared a disaster zone.

About 60 percent of the nation's 850,000 people live on Viti Levu, which is the hub of the island chain and the site of the nation's capital Suva.

A family of four, including two children, were killed in a landslide Wednesday after becoming trapped in their home at a village in the island's western Ba region, the information ministry said. Police told FBC News a 35-year-old father, 30-year-old mother and their two daughters, aged three and one, were buried alive.
