THE cost of rehabilitation work on damaged houses as a result of Tropical Cyclone Evan will be compiled today, says divisional planning officer north Alipate Bolalevu.

Mr Bolalevu said the centre was also operating on a skeleton staff because of the favourable weather conditions experienced.

"The cost of rehabilitation work will be tabled out and we hope to finalise everything so we can start rebuilding people's lives," Mr Bolalevu said.

"We have continued to distribute food relief supplies to areas that were affected by the cyclone and assistance from agencies keeps on pouring in."

Despite the good weather conditions, he said the team had continued to monitor the situation on the ground.

"We are still monitoring the weather situation and we hope to assist all those who were affected by the raging cyclone.

"Our aim is to manage the crisis in order to protect human lives, minimise casualties and sustain livelihood and continue to build resilient Northern communities."
