Continuous heavy rain in the last few days has affected normal supply of local food to Honiara market outlets.
This was seen since mid last week when heavy down pour hit the capital and Guadalcanal, following the announcement of typhoon dolphin headed towards Guam.
Local market outlets at White River in the western side of Honiara was lowly supplied with root crops and vegetables during this rainy season, as well as the Honiara central market was not crowded with garden foods like how it use to be on fine weather.
Vendors of Honiara market supplying garden food are mostly from Guadalcanal; hence the heavy rainfall in the province has forced most suppliers to stay indoors as most feared the cyclone warning issued for the pacific, while some avoid contracting illness related to wet weather.
Also the supply of fish in the central market was very low as fishermen were not able to fish during hurricane seasons, because rough seas with strong wind in the last five days imposed risks.
