Sixty seven evacuation centers are currently on standby in the Lau Group as preparations continue for severe Tropical Cyclone Gita.
Commissioner Eastern, Luke Moroivalu says these centers will be activated when the need arises.
“My advice to the whole of Lau to prepare, when I say these, they are on the preparation mode and perhaps tonight, they may move to the community halls, to the evacuations centers if they feel that they should go up there for preparedness.”
Moroivalu says they are closely monitoring the situation and will get help from the Fiji Military Forces and the Police if the situation deteriorates.
He adds his office is working closely with the Turaga Ni Koro’s of the 67 villages in the Lau group as they prepare for the worst.
