A geotechnical team from the Mineral Resources Department is conducting geological surveys in 20 locations throughout Vanua Levu.

Minister for Lands and Mineral Resources Jone Usamate says the team will be examining areas where landslips, landslides and land cracks were recorded.

These include Qalitu Primary School in Savusavu, where a massive landslide has threatened to destroy the kindergarten building, Nabavatu in Dreketi where land cracks have made the village unsafe for inhabitation and the roads network from Labasa to Savusavu which is plagued with cracks and slips.

A survey is also being done to identify an ideal site for the relocation of Yadua Island Primary School in Bua, as a precautionary measure, due to issues with landslides.

The team will be carrying out surveys into next week.

A combination of seismic activity and excessive rainfall is believed to have triggered these massive land movements, disrupting travel and everyday life for communities in the Northern Division.
