THE Fiji Electricity Authority is making every effort to ensure power is fully restored in some of the areas in the country badly affected by Tropical Cyclone Evan.

In a progress report issued yesterday evening, FEA chief executive Hasmukh Patel said work was in progress for most of the areas with assistance from contractors and other agencies.

He said 95 per cent power had been restored in Naitasiri, 63 per cent in Sigatoka, 72 per cent in Nadi, 65 per cent in Lautoka, 54 per cent in Ba, 40 per cent in Tavua and Nadarivatu and 40 per cent in Rakiraki.

Mr Patel said the authority had also fully restored power in areas in Tailevu, Nausori, Nasinu, Lami, Naboro, Navua, Pacific Harbour, Vunidawa, Korolevu, Labasa, Savusavu and Levuka.

He said restoration of power from Wailoa to Nadovu in Naitasiri was hampered because of landslide 2km from Wailoa towards Udu and an eroded embankment at the Mateinasau crossing.

"Fiji Roads Authority is currently working on repairing access," Mr Patel added.
