GOOD news for people in the North as all communication networks have been fully restored in the aftermath of Tropical Cyclone Evan .

Northern Emergency Operations Centre team leader Inoke Dokonivalu said water and electricity in most affected areas in Labasa and Savusavu were also restored.

However, he said the restoration of power in Bua and Taveuni was still in progress.

"All telecommunication networks are fully restored as well as the power in Vatunibale and Delailabasa," Mr Dokonivalu said.

At the same time, he said most of the roads on Vanua Levu were open to traffic as workers from the Fiji Roads Authority cleared debris on the road.

"Only a few roads are still closed as we await waters to recede. Motorists are also advised to drive with care because the roads need further improvement," he said.
