THOSE affected by floods in the Western Division may be able to access money in their Fiji National Provident Fund accounts to assist in their recovery efforts.

Commissioner Western Commander Joeli Cawaki confirmed this was suggested by Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama during his tour of flood affected areas in Sigatoka and Nadi yesterday.

Cdr Cawaki said applications received by the FNPF would be assessed against standard criteria.

"Also the teams are assessing if there is a need for people to have an advance in FNPF assistance just to help them with their recovery efforts," he said.

He added government teams had also been dispatched to assess damage suffered by farmers.

"We are doing our various assessments.

"Agriculture is doing their own assessments on crops.

"If there is need to send in rations then we will do it with our teams from agriculture."
