Preliminary impact damage assessments from the divisions have identified damage sustained to more than 300 houses in the Northern and Eastern Divisions after Severe Tropical Cyclone Yasa.
The teams from the divisions were deployed to affected communities and villages last week following the aftermath of #TCYasa.
Government officials from Viti Levu have also been deployed as part of the 120 personnel deployment to Vanua Levu to assist in conducting the assessments in the North.
The assessments and distribution of emergency food packs and essential items have begun.
We remind all #Fijians to remain vigilant and take steps to prevent outbreaks of Leptospirosis, Typhoid, Diarrhoea and Dengue which are common after disasters.
