MAJORITY of the clean-up and relief efforts are being directed to Lautoka City in the Western Division, the National Disaster Management Office (NDMO) said yesterday.

NDMO director, Manasa Tagicakibau said as the west was the most affected from Tropical Cyclone Evan, much effort was being put into restoring the city.

"The essentials in the Western Division, such as electricity and water supply are still yet to be completely restored," Mr Tagicakibau said.

He added that power in the Western Division was still out in many places.

"The FEA is moving out to the outer islands, the Mamanuca Island and the western areas as they will be able to give us a better understanding of what's happening on the ground" he said.

He said NDMO's efforts were being directed into restoring the essentials such as water and electricity.
