Salaseini Moceiwai
Friday, February 28, 2014

THE Cakaudrove Provincial Council is working closely with village headmen in the province to prepare for the forcasted cyclone.

Roko tui Cakaudrove Bulutani Mataitawakilai said they were taking proactive measures to ensure the villagers were ready for it.

"We are working closely with the headmen because they are the ones who will be disseminating information to the villagers," he said.

"They have been told to advise villagers about precautionary measures. Also, the villagers have been encouraged to plant cyclone-resistant crops.

"We have also set up strategies to guide us through should the cyclone strike later in the week."

Mr Mataitawakilai said it was prudent for the villagers to take proactive measures to avoid mishaps.

"We are emphasising the need for villagers not to defy weather warnings. They should take it seriously and immediately prepare themselves.

"People should learn from past cyclones and take a stand in ensuring they are not victims of this upcoming storm."

More rain is expected in the next few days.
