THE positive response by the people in Vanua Levu towards cyclone warning and preparation has resulted in nil reports of casualties.

Acting divisional police commander North Acting Senior Superintendent of Police Fulori Rainibogi said they had been monitoring the situation in all police stations and posts in the north and have received no reports of rescue or casualties so far.

ASSP Rainibogi said the nil reports were indication of how people had heeded the cyclone warnings and acted accordingly.

"Our officers in all stations around the division have been out on patrol monitoring the situation in their area of operations," said SP Rainibogi.

"We continue to monitor the situation as the adverse weather condition continues to affect us through today (yesterday)."

"We have even set up checkpoints in strategic places across the division to monitor and closely scrutinise the movement of people," she said.

Meanwhile, Commissioner Northern Lieutenant Colonel Ilai Moceica, in his message to the general public, has stressed the importance of their safety and security during the current adverse weather conditions.

"We should expect more rain after the tropical cyclone passes us and we are bracing for the worst," said Lt Col Moceica.

"We continue to warn people to stay put in their locations and refrain from unnecessary movement."

"We are also calling on people to monitor the conditions in their areas and make use of the daylight to move to their nearest evacuation centres," he said.
