North monitored

THE Commissioner Northern's office has yet again activated a skeleton team to monitor the rainy weather situation experienced in the North.

Acting Commissioner Northern Alipate Bolalevu said they had been informed of a low pressure affecting the Fiji group prompting them to take pro-active measures.

"A team of skeleton staff has been tasked to monitor the weather situation here in the North," he said.

"While the pressure has not directly affected the people of the North as of now, it's only fitting that we take appropriate measures now should problems occur later.

"We haven't received any reports of flooding but we have once again reiterated the need for people living in flood-prone areas to move to higher grounds for their own safety."

Mr Bolalevu said motorists had also been warned against the wet weather conditions.

"We expect roads to be slippery and that's why we are strongly advising motorists to take extra caution while driving. The onus is on every individual to take preventative measures against this weather."

A public weather bulletin issued yesterday afternoon stated periods of rain, heavy at times and squally thunderstorms were forecasted for Labasa.

For Savusavu, the bulletin also forecasted periods of rain, heavy at times and squally thunderstorms.
