Eruption not affecting Fiji air

The Fijian government says the air over the country is safe to breathe following the volcanic eruption in Tonga.

The Department of Environment has analysed sulphur dioxide concentration levels over Fiji, and has confirmed that they are below the World Health Organisation's air quality guidelines.

The Department will continue to closely monitor the situation and work with the Fiji National Disaster Management Office and Fiji Meteorological Service.
