Third death confirmed
The third person died on the island of Rabi, just off Vanua Levu.
Anthony Blake, operations officer for Disaster Management Office DISMAC told Fijilive the man lost his life when a tree fell on his house at the height of the cyclone. He said DISMAC was hoping the death toll did not rise any further.
The second body was found yesterday in Seaqaqa of a Public Works Department worker who drowned while crossing a river near Labasa during the cyclone.
The first fatality, a 31 year old woman, came as the Category Four cyclone was bearing down on Fiji, last Saturday.
