Aid on its way

The Fiji navy will this morning deliver aid to islands in the Lau and Lomaiviti group which are thought to be the worst affected by Cyclone Tomas.

Disaster officials are still not sure how much damage has been done by the cyclone but will conduct assessments on the ground today.

A New Zealand Hercules left this morning with emergency aid for Fiji.

More than 18,000 people were evacuated to 260 evacuation centers nationwide.

The United Nations Children’s Fund says it's on standby with emergency relief supplies like medical equipment, drugs, water containers, water purifying tablets, soap, tarpaulins and tents.
