A number of people in the West and North are still trying to come to terms with the destruction brought on by Tropical Cyclone Evan.
A Vunivere resident, in Seaqaqa is calling for help from authorities after the roof of his house was blown away by strong winds yesterday.
Jagdish Prasad says they spent the whole night at a nearby school.
70-year-old Shiu Ram also of Vunivere says he has no one to go to for help after part of his house was also destroyed by the strong winds.
His son Ashok Chand who is in New Zealand says they were worried from last night for his parents safety.
Chand kept on calling him but failed everytime as the phone network was down.
The only thing he could do was pray for their safety.
In Nadi, Votualevu resident, Shalendra Prasad says in their area, they were lucky to have faced no major damage.
“This is the first time for me to see this kind of cyclone. From noon yesterday ’till 3am this morning heavy winds were experienced. The Vodafone line is dead at the moment and the reports that I have received is that Nadi Town is now closed. It’s good that there is no flood or else Nadi would have been badly affected once again."
