More relief supplies have arrived in Labasa for the cyclone ravaged areas in Vanua Levu.
Two French Military Aircraft landed at the Waiqele Airport this morning packed with tents and food ration for victims of TC Winston.
Commissioner Northern Jovesa Vocea says the first flight carried 120 packs of tarpaulins and 120 tool kits and the 2nd plane brought more tarpaulins as well as food ration.
Vocea says the tarpaulins will provide temporary shelter for those currently living in evacuation centers as they await the rehabilitation programs when their homes will be built again.
These supplies will be distributed to affected areas from tomorrow.
There are currently 125 active evacuation centers in the Northern division with 3,400 evacuees.
