BANK of South Pacific staff resumed work on Tuesday following minor damage and intermittent disruptions to services in the wake of Cyclone Evan.

BSP country manager and chair of incident, risk and management committee, Kevin McCarthy said majority of the network had resumed operations on Tuesday morning despite the impact of strong gale force winds.

"SMS banking customers who could get reception from respective mobile network providers were still able to access basic services such as topping up mobile phones, balance equities, transferring of funds and reviewing account history.

"At the height of Cyclone Evan, we were able to facilitate our customers need for communication by allowing them to top up their mobile phones and contact loved ones from wherever they were.

"All North and Central Eastern division branches are open and where necessary, generator sets are in place to ensure power supply, as long as fuel is available," Mr McCarthy said.

All BSP branches in the west were expected to open yesterday.
