Floods are the leading cause of
disaster-related death in the
Caribbean, but since most can be
forecast, you should have time to
prepare. Your Red Cross urges you
to get ready. There are simple
steps you can take to help protect
your family from a flood.
Know your area's flood risk. If
unsure, call your Red Cross or
Emergency Management Agency.
If you are in a risk area, investigate
the feasibility of flood insurance.
Know the location of the main elec-
trical breaker and the gas and water
valves in your home and ensure you
have a clear path to easily access
them so that you can shut them off
When a Flood
Warning is issued:
Monitor the radio for weather
updates and evacuate immediately if
you are told to do so.
Move your furniture and valuables to
higher floors of your home or place
them high if possible.
Bring in all loose items from outside,
like garbage cans and yard furniture
for safe keeping.
Turn off the main electrical switch
and other utilities.
Place important documents and
valuables in plastic and store them
in a safe place.
Flood water dangers:
Do not walk through flowing water.
Just six inches of moving water can
knock you off your feet.
Never attempt to cross a swollen
stream, river or gully by foot or
vehicle. The force of these water-
ways can have deadly consequences.
If your vehicle stalls in rising water,
abandon it immediately and climb to
higher ground. A mere two feet of
water can float a large vehicle, even
After a flood:
Clean and dry everything water-
soaked. Flood waters can pick up
sewerage and chemicals from roads,
farms and factories. Spoiled food
and flooded medicines are health
hazards. When in doubt, throw them
Check appliances and motors for
damage and do not use them until
they have been cleaned and dried.
Watch out for wild animals. Snakes
and centipedes that have been
flooded out of their homes may seek
shelter in yours. Use a pole or a
stick to poke and turn items over
and scare them away.
If your home was seriously affected
by the floods and you suspect your
electrical wiring may have been
damaged, have it checked by a quali-
fied person before turning on the
main electrical switch.
Punch holes in all containers left
outside to prevent water from set-
tling and these from becoming
breeding grounds for mosquitoes.
Purify water before using. Use chlo-
rine bleach or water purifying
tablets. Boil tap water for ten min-

to put away a spirited Fiji side
playing its second game in five
days at the Rugby World Cup,
winning 28-13 mainly thanks to
a quick brace of first-half tries
from No 8 David Pocock yester-
Pocock dived over at the base
of rolling mauls to help the Aus-
tralians to an 18-3 halftime lead
in their first Pool A game of the
tournament. And when prop
Sekope Kepu barged over for a
third try early in the second half,
Fiji faced a huge task so soon after
losing to England in the opening
game on Friday.
Yet flyhalf Ben Volavola s solo
try in the 60th inspired the Fijians
to a strong finish, with Australia
getting pinned back in its own half
in the final minutes. The Wallabies
failed, unlike England, to earn the
bonus point for four tries that
could yet prove significant in what
is expected to be a tight pool as
it also contains Wales.
"I m new to test footy, right,
but for me winning a test match,
that s all you need to do and then
move onto the next one," Cheika
said, playing down the impact of
the missed bonus point. "I m not

of a belated start to the tourna-

rivals slugged it out over the open-

battle-hardened but potentially
sore from a 35-11 loss to England
at Twickenham, the Australians
were fresh and buoyed from win-

Fiji was expected to fade in the
second half---as Japan did against
Scotland hours earlier after its
quick turnaround from the week-
end. It didn t happen.
"The effort was amazing to back
up," Fiji coach John McKee said.
Sniffing another upset, the neu-
trals under the Millennium Sta-
dium s closed roof were firmly
behind the Flying Fijians, with
chants of "Fiji, Fiji" sweeping the
venue after each break or big tack-
le. Imagine what could have tran-
spired with a few more days rest.
As it turned out, Pocock s brace
of tries proved crucial. They both
came from the same source---
attacking lineouts after Australia
turned down penalty kicks at goal.
Pocock is a recent convert to the
No 8 shirt but he looked at home
there as he controlled the ball at

Talemaitoga s attempted tackle to scurry
over in the 43rd and Australia looked
set for a bonus-point win to keep pace
Fiji summoned up energy out of
nowhere, and produced some wonder-
ful offloads and one-handed passes
that thrilled a near-capacity crowd.
Volavola s try was a delight, sidestep-
ping Rob Simmons and dummying past
another lock in Kane Douglas to battle
across the line and between the posts.
By the end, the Australians were
hanging on and Foley kicked a penalty
in the 70th minute to put a margin of
two converted tries between the teams,
when they could have gone for a fourth
try and bonus point.
