$121K Flood Damage

The cost of damage to crops and livestock from the recent flood is around $121,000.

This was confirmed by Minister for Agriculture, Rural Development and National Disaster Management, Inia Seruiratu.

“We have completed the survey on the areas affected by the heavy rain last weekend and this is in the provinces of Rewa, Naitasiri and Tailevu,” Mr Seruiratu said.

“This does not include infrastructure but is just from crops and livestock. Farming like any other business has got risks,”he said.

Mr Seruiratu said the only assistance the ministry would be offering was planting materials.

“We will be supplying seeds and since it is not a declared state of disaster, we will be offering minimum assistance.
