3 Evacuation Centres Activated In The North

The National Disaster and Management Officer (NDMO) director Vasiti Soko confirmed that the three evacuation centres were now in place.

Mrs Soko during the press conference said the evacuation centres were operational in Rabi, Dreketi Macuata and Naweni Cakaudrove.

“We urge the public, especially those living in low lying areas, to be cautious and if need for going to the nearest evacuation centres arise, they should call the Police officers on 917 for guidance,” she said.

“Stay away from rivers and streams and exercise caution while using roads. I ask the farmers to take all necessary measures to reduce any risk to life or to their property.

“We request residents in low lying areas to stock food and water and practice good hygiene to avoid leptospirosis dengue and diarrhoea.”

“While prevailing the weather conditions are getting worse, please ensure your emergency kits are ready. Prepare your families and loved ones.”
