Divisional Police Commander (DPC) Northern Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Eparama Waqa confirms that there was no report of flooding or damage as Tropical Cyclone Mona weakens.

“Our Police officers are on standby and will assist when the need arises from the Commissioner Northern’s office,” SSP Waqa said.

“For the past few days we have been on patrol and monitoring the weather situation and as of yesterday there has been no major rain.

“We have seen people in Macuata Province taking precautions by securing their property, which is a good sign.

“We continue to advise people to stay safe and watch over their children.”

Meanwhile, Fiji Roads Authority released a statement yesterday stating there had been closure of two crossings and one bridge in the Northern Division.

These are Nubu Crossing, Waibula Bridge and Bucalevu Crossing in Savusavu.

Meanwhile, the Fiji Meteorological Service says that TC Mona, as of 4pm yesterday, had weakened and downgraded to a Category two cyclone. It further said that TC Mona was moving eastwards at about 10 kilometres per hour.
