Back to business

OPERATIONS in Nadi Town have normalised with businesses opening again.

According to a government statement, special administrator Aisea Tuidraki said businesses had normalised but most shops and the market arena had yet to receive normal power supply.

"We have deployed health inspectors to the various supermarkets to inspect damaged items and confiscate damaged food items.

"This program is expected to be completed today (yesterday)," Mr Tuidraki said. Sixty per cent of Nadi has received normal power supply.

"We are anticipating that the relevant authorities will be able to reinstate all essential services to the affected ratepayers," he said.

Mr Tuidraki said the council had so far estimated $80,000 worth of structural damage to council properties, however, he said an actual amount should be released soon.

Council workers are also clearing debris and fallen trees along the Queens Rd which is expected to be cleared by this afternoon.
