The work by civil servants and non-governmental organisations during the recent floods in the Western Division has not gone unnoticed.
Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama yesterday thanked them for their support during Thursday’s flooding in Nadi and other areas.
Speaking during his visit to the West yesterday, Commodore Bainimarama also thanked the family members of civil servants for their patience.
“Thank you for the hard work and please thank your families too in allowing you to carry out your duties as public servants,” he  said.
“This operation was very well executed and co-ordinated which has been one of the major success stories during the floods on Thursday.”
During a briefing by the Commissioner Western, Commander Joeli Cawaki, the Prime Minister was informed that some roads were now open again to traffic and some would be ready by tomorrow.
Commander Cawaki said all schools that sheltered evacuees would be ready to open and resume classes from tomorrow as well.
“Currently only one school is still in activation but will close and those evacuees will either be taken to halls or community centres before they return home. This is to ensure that school opens on Monday,” Commander Cawaki said.
“There were no major damage to public utilities but most of the damage were recorded in agriculture.”
