Most roads are fully accessible

February 24, 2016 6:14 pm

42 people are dead after Severe Tropical Cyclone Winston swept through the Fiji Group last Saturday.

Roads in the Central and Northern Division are fully accessible while assessments are underway for the Eastern Division.

Minister for National Disaster Management Inia Seruiratu says work will begin as soon as there is a clearer picture of the situation in the East.

However, nearly ninety percent of roads have been restored in the West with work well underway to make all roads accessible.

Many of our jetties also require substantial repairs.

Seruiratu says construction machines have been deployed to Koro Island to restore the Island’s jetty.

Unfortunately, while many Fijians require urgent medical care, numerous hospitals have also been badly damaged.

“We’ve yet tore-establish communication with the Eastern Division to assess their situation, but medical teams have been deployed. In the Central division, the Wainibokasi Hospital has been badly damaged and some services have been temporarily relocated to the first floor. In the West, Ba Hospital has taken on major damage and requires substantial repair works. We are currently attempting to re-establish communications with the Yasawa’s and our Rakiraki sub-division hospital. In the North, Labasa hospital has only suffered minor damage and is operating at full capacity.”

Seruiratu says medical teams are on their way to affected regions so people get the health care they desperately need during this time.
