THE Northern Emergency Operation Centre has continued to distribute food rations to families affected by Tropical Cyclone Evan in some parts of the north.

On Wednesday, the centre supplied emergency food relief rations to 474 people in Naiviqiri Village and Baravi settlement in Bua.

The supplies included rice, dhal, flour, sugar, canned fish and oil.

Provincial administrator Macuata Josefa Rokonai said most of those affected had been supplied with food rations.

"The one-week ration for victims throughout the region was evenly distributed and only a few places are left to be covered," Mr Rokonai said.

"For now, discussions are in progress to supply rations that will cater for victims over a period of two weeks."

He said they would continue to operate and co-ordinate with the victims until they were fit to continue with their normal lives.

Meanwhile, Mr Rokonai said out of the seven evacuation centres activated in Bua, only two were stilll occupied with 42 evacuees.

The centres are Yadua District School and Navakasiga District School.
