Water Levels in Fly River Rising

By Stanley Ove Jr – EM TV News, Port Moresby

Water levels of the Fly River are rising, after light to heavy rains over the weekend in Western Province.

Kiunga in particular, experienced a heavy downpour last week Saturday which has brought up the levels of the Fly River around its main wharf.

Ships were seen making their way into the Ok Tedi Mining wharf area, which brought a sense of relief to many.

Locals told EMTV News the dry weather is slowly weakening, however some parts of the river system are still dried up.

Heavy rains have also been reported in some parts of the NGI, Highlands and Momase Regions with rains pouring for the 1st time in almost 6 months in Port Moresby over the weekend.

The El Nino has taken a huge toll in Western Province, forcing the Ok Tedi mine to a near shut down and affecting thousands who depend heavily on the Fly River for survival.
