It appears the regime will declare a state of natural disaster after the latest bout of flooding, caused by unexpected rain just a month after the flash floods of January.
There is conflicting information though over the death toll: overseas reports put it at six but Sharon Smith Johns says it's two.
The illegal leader, Frank Bainimarama, has meanwhile extended the 200% rebate on donations to the Flood Relief Appeal, which began in January, for another two months, to May 31.
It had expired yesterday. The rebate applies to donations over $1,000.
