Movement restricted

Update: 11:19AM MOVEMENT of people continued to be restricted in the northern town of Labasa yesterday because of heavy rain and strong winds.

Police officers patrolled the streets since Sunday night to ensure that people are not harmed by Tropical Cyclone Evan.

While authorities are yet to reveal the damage caused by TC Evan, they warned members of the public to be extra careful and stay indoors in an effort to prevent unnecessary accidents.

Commisioner Northern Lieutenant Colonel Ilai Moceica said the curfew was imposed to minimise risks.

"Police officers will continue to monitor the movement of people and we expect them to comply with the curfew because this is for their own safety," he said.
