The authorities in Fiji have issued flood alerts as a tropical depression moves towards the country.

The depression - which is called TD03F - continues to intensify, although it's only a low to moderate chance of becoming a cyclone.

TD03F, combined with a low that's sitting to the south of Fiji, is likely to contribute to heavy rains and flash flooding in the coming days.

People are being urged to prepare for floods, particularly on the northern island of Vanua Levu.
