THE Commissioner Northern's office will continue to monitor the weather within the provinces of Cakaudrove, Bua and Macuata despite the cancellation of heavy rain warning by the national weather service.

Commissioner Northern Alipate Bolalevu said government assessment teams had been deployed to continue monitoring the conditions and status of the provinces.

Mr Bolalevu said so far there had been no reports of road closures in the division.

"According to reports we have received, the weather has been normalising in most places across the region and there have been no damage to property or lives as a direct result of the Tropical Depression 15F," he said.

"The provincial administrators are out in the three divisions doing their assessments and we should be receiving a general idea of the impact of the weather system in the North soon.

"So far there are no evacuation centres opened in the North and we have yet to receive any report of flooding."

Meanwhile, a group of police officers were on a 24/7 standby for emergency assistance to the public after a heavy rain warning was enforced for the division.

Police personnel patrolled the low-lying areas of Labasa last night.

Police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri said personnel were deployed to conduct patrols and attend to emergency situations.

"We received nil reports of flooding in the North but our teams are still on standby until the adverse weather warning for the North has been cleared by the Commissioner North's office."
