Prepare for the cyclone

PEOPLE in the North have been urged to start minor repairs on their houses in response to the cyclone forecast by the weather office in Nadi.

Acting commissioner northern Alipate Bolalevu says it's only proper for people to be proactive and take necessary action before the cyclone.

"Those people who feel their houses need repairs must act now and start with minor maintenance work," he said.

"Overgrown trees beside the houses can be chopped off now and people should start hammering their roofs and bracing their homes with strong ropes.

"Let's not ignore or defy weather warnings. Let's be prepared and be on the lookout for such weather conditions."

Mr Bolalevu said his office was also on standby to monitor the situation.

"Mishaps do happen when we don't take heed of weather warnings and it's my humble advice to members of the public to be vigilant and extra careful."
