The people of Ba believe that dredging program saved the town from flooding, reports fijitimes.com.
They are very grateful that the government dredged the Ba River last year.
After continuous rain on Wednesday night, they expected the river to overflow and flood the town, said Samuela Kautoga, local resident.
“Based on our past experiences, it should have been under water after all that heavy rainfall. We now see that the river has held and not broke its banks despite the heavy rain over two days,” he said.
