NDMO Preparing For Possible Cyclone
Minister Inia Seruiratu.

In preparation for the stormy weather, Minister Seruiratu said: “We get updated by the weather office and we have been in touch with all that is happening on the ground.

“We have been advised by the Commissioner Northern that most of the roads in the north are flooded.

“Schools in the north have definitely been advised to stay closed.”

The Ministry of Education has confirmed the same for all schools around the country.

He said so far there had been no word from the Ministry of Education if the schools on Viti Levu were to close.

He said it was up to parents to consider the weather situation in their area and decide what is best for them.

“We are still continuing with recovery and rehab for Cyclone Yasa. Work is ongoing, we have various strategies in place because we know we will have to split resources once something does happen,” Mr Seruiratu said.

There will be a briefing this morning to decide what steps would be taken to keep the general public safe.
