Families move to evac centres

Maciu Malo
Friday, January 31, 2014

STILL reeling from the impact of Tropical Cyclone Evan, people living in Nadi's low lying areas were on their feet securing property and personal belongings early yesterday morning.

And some of the first to seek shelter on higher grounds were residents of Nawejikuma, Nawakalevu, Nalagi and Navakai.

Yesterday morning four evacuation centres were activated in the Nadi area — St Andrews Primary School, Nadi College, Nadi Sangam SKMC and Nadi Muslim College.

At Nadi Muslim College, Navakai resident Salanieta Lewaivou, 53, said her family was still recovering from the devastation caused by Tropical Cyclone Evan.

She said she was concerned about the welfare of her family as floodwaters continued to rise at midday.

At midday yesterday a total of 131 families were at Saint Andrews Primary School.
