THE impending cyclone warning has come at a time when many people in Ra are trying to rebuild their houses damaged by Cyclone Evan, according to Ra provincial administrator Kelepi Kubunameca.

About 356 houses were commissioned to be built this week with work having already started.

"This will all have stop now," Mr Kubunameca said.

The cyclone rehabilitation project began full operations last week upon the arrival of timber from New Zealand. Work is expected to stop now.

"The focus has moved from this to the fight against dengue, and now the cyclone.

"But we must act now so the whole machinery for this has been activated."

Mr Kubunameca has called on all village headmen in the province to lead the charge in preparing the villages.

"A lot of times during natural disasters people cause more problems because they never prepare."
