People in Viti Levu are still under restricted movement which means there should be no unnecessary movement. This has been confirmed by the Director of the National Disaster Management Office, Vasiti Soko who says only emergency service vehicles are allowed on the road.

The NDMO Director says essential workers will have to carry their work ID.

The restrictions are still in place as FRA, EFL and Forestry officers are working to clear debris and landslides on the roads.

The NDMO will await clearance from the Divisional Commissioners before a decision is made.

They says they cannot risk people’s lives as there are some fallen power lines, lanslides and fallen trees on the road.

Thankfully, there are no deaths despite the monster system connected with even tornadoes creating havoc from late last night
