Update: 2:09PM Naloto villagers are seeking assistance from government in getting a seawall constructed on their coastline as tides slowly depletes soil and sand from their coastline.

The Tailevu village headman Tomasi Toroca said the need for a seawall to be constructed at the village had been highlighted at the recent tikina and provincial council meeting this year.

He said out of the 75 families living close to the sea, 30 were vulnerable to being relocated because of the depletion of the coastline.

"There are 30 families that normally get affected during a cyclone as water enters their home and even when there is a high tide," Mr Toroca said.
