I was astonished to read on Fijivillage that the whole island of Viti Levu is without electricity. Does that mean lights, computers, phones, water, all of it?
Maybe computers on batteries are still working.

Entire Viti Levu is currently without power supply.
The Fiji Electricity Authority Customer Care center confirmed that their engineers are now combing the grids in the Western and Central division to try and locate the cause of the black out.
They said there is no time frame at this stage as to when power supply will be restored.
FEA CEO Hasmukh Patel could not be reached for a comment.
Meanwhile the current Power blackout on Viti Levu is expected to cause disruptions for most parts of Viti Levu.
The Fiji water Authority Spokesperson Maika Nagalu said the power shutdown may affect their treatment plants and residents on Viti Levu are being advised to store water now if there is water still running in your taps.
