The Commissioner West­ern and his team were advised to make cer­tain that their assessments quick and to be sure no one was left out.

The Minister for Rural and Maritime Development and Disaster Management Inia Seruiratu made sure of this when he inspected several ar­eas and major infrastructures affected by the recent floods in Ba on Tuesday.

Mr Seruiratu reminded the Government personnel man­ning the Emergency Opera­tions Centre and the Ba Town Council to prioritise the cleaning of major towns to ensure a swift resumption of eco­nomic activities in these centres.

He visited the Balevuto Irish Crossing in Nalotawa, Ba, which was often prone to flooding during events of heavy rainfall.

During his visit, Mr Seruiratu also made a stopover at a small farming community in the district of Nalotawa to meet with farm­er, Rakesh Kumar, and his family.

Mr Kumar’s farm was devastated by the floods.

Mr Seruiratu also made a visit to the Ba Market where he met with personnel from the Republic of Fiji Military Forces (RFMF) and the National Fire Authority (NFA) who were conducting a clean-up at Ba Town.

The minister also visited evacuation cen­tres in Tailevu to distribute food rations yesterday.
