A TEAM of government officials will carry out a physical assessment in the provinces Cakaudrove, Bua and Macuata to determine the damage caused by Tropical Cyclone Evan.

Commissioner Northern Lieutenant Colonel Ilai Moceica said yesterday the team would work with provincial council offices and district representatives.

"Even though TC Evan has left our shores, we should expect more and more rain which could lead to severe damage to farms and also flooding in low-lying areas," Lt-Col Moceica said.

"The assessment will require a lot of manpower and we are still yet to determine the time such work will be carried out."

Lt-Col Moceica said his emergency operations team would continue to instruct the provincial council offices on the aftermath of TC Evan.

"For now, we are just advising the members of the public to be careful because we expect more rain in the next few days," he said.
