A team of Government offic­ers under the direction of the Commissioner North­ern Jovesa Vocea, is monitoring the weather situation at their headquarters in Labasa.

This was confirmed by Mr Vocea yesterday.

“We are sending reports to Na­tional Disaster Management Com­mittee (DISMAC) every six hours and we collate updates from all sectors,” Mr Vocea said.

“Nothing much is happening ex­cept for some roads being closed as reported by Fiji Roads Authority.

“We had a meeting with heads of departments yesterday to look at the current weather pattern and prepare ourselves for the upcom­ing Tropical Disturbance TD07F in the next 48 hours,” he said.

“It is currently located near Va­nuatu and is expected to move towards Fiji and may gradually intensify into a depression and possibly affect the group from to­morrow.
