A tropical depression (TD17F) and tropical cyclone Daphne with associated heavy rainfall significantly affected the Western and Central Divisions of Fiji from 29 March - 3 April 2012 causing landslides and widespread flooding of low lying areas. Over 200,000 people were directly affected with 14,000 people requiring shelter assistance at 180 evacuation centers opened throughout the Western and Central Division. Floods and landslides claimed four lives in total with one person reported missing. Water and electricity supplies have been disrupted and critical infrastructure, especially roads, bridges, and dams, have suffered extensive damage over and above that caused by the January 2012 floods. Similar to the last floods, the Western Division is the main impacted area but more provinces and districts are currently affected (the north coast and western half of Viti Levu).
