Second cyclone death confirmed

A second death from the Category Four cyclone, Tomas, has been confirmed.

The man has yet to be named but his body was found in the Seaqaqa River, in Labasa, on Saturday.

The Disaster Management Office says he worked for the Public Works department and was a father of seven.

The first official death was recorded as that of a 31 year old woman, who was washed out to sea.

Earlier reports suggested as many as six deaths with the police saying poor communication is slowing efforts to determine the true number of casualties.
