Taskforce to monitor weather

Salaseini Moceiwai
Friday, January 31, 2014

A TASKFORCE was activated on Wednesday night in Labasa to monitor the weather situation in the North.

Acting Commissioner Northern Alipate Bolalevu yesterday said the team was operating with a small number of people.

"The team is comprised of some government officials who started their work on Wednesday," he said.

"They are just operating with only a few staff members for the purpose of monitoring the weather in the North. They will continue to monitor the situation until the weather normalises.

"We are pleading with parents to monitor their children's movements, especially those who use bridges, culverts and Irish crossings daily to get to school.

"Also, we are requesting motorists and logging trucks to drive with extreme caution to ensure road accidents don't happen."

Mr Bolalevu said all district offices in the North were also alerted to be on the lookout for any report of damage and flooding.

"We are working closely with all the DOs so they can update us on the weather situation in their areas.

"Right now, I have not received a report of any major damage but this doesn't necessarily mean we slacken our work, instead we will continue with our monitoring work."
