Team to visit more areas

SUVA Rotary Club members have cited Lautoka as the worst hit from Tropical Cyclone Evan.

Griffon Emose, a senior member with the charitable organisation, said surveys had not been completed and more would be revealed once the team had visited other areas in the Western Division.

"We are just amazed at the extent of damage to Lautoka. It is quite extensive when compared to Nadi and Ba, however, we will have a better take on things once we've visited Tavua and other areas," he said.

Mr Emose said while the team of 30 from Suva Rotary were merely conducting a survey to ascertain what people's immediate needs were, they also had provisions for extremely needy cases.

"This is just the first wave for Rotary Suva and we're basically here to find out what people are lacking and need straight away. However, if we do come across cases of urgency we drop off emergency response kits to families that have lost a significant part of their belongings or homes and we also have food packs for the most needy," he said.
