Yachts tucked away

YACHTS, ships and boats that usually beautify Savusavu Harbour with its different colours and composition were all tucked away behind Nawi Island yesterday — keeping safe from Tropical Cyclone Evan.

The island shore that sits out at sea opposite Savusavu Town and about five minutes boat ride from shore was occupied with boats and yachts.

A pre TC Evan trip to Cakaudrove saw boat owners pulling their boats to shore, copra farmers collecting and piling their coconuts together in a shed, residents cutting down tall trees while some digging and clearing drains near their homes and other putting up shutters.

Business people stayed calm but admitted praying for the cyclone not to hit Fiji. Market vendors in Savusavu continued with normal daily business with smiles on their faces as they happily served their customers.

Divisional planning officer northern Alipate Bolalevu yesterday toured the divisions with his team monitoring the situation.
