Update: 1:09PM THE Fiji Electricity Authority (FEA) has urged the public to undertake precautionary and preventive measures when cyclone Evan hits Fiji.

FEA has issued a warning on fallen wires as strong winds and a waterlogged ground can result in trees and branches falling and bringing down power lines.

The authority is waiting for the weather report form the weather office in Nadi so it can put down its wind turbines in Sigatoka.

In a statement, FEA said it had prepared well for this cyclone with standby generators for all the main centres in Fiji.

FEA said safety was its top priority with Fiji always subjected to extreme weather conditions ranging from droughts to cyclones.
