State of emergency declared

The Fiji Broadcasting Corporation says a state of emergency has been declared for the North and Eastern divisions of the Fiji islands.

The state of emergency follows the arrival of Cyclone Tomas, which has damaged parts of Vanua Levu and is now pounding the Northern Lau group.

The decision was made after a meeting between DISMAC officials, security forces from the Police, the Military council, the President and the Prime Minister to determine how best they could assist the Northern Division.
