BOTH sea and land commuters in the Western Province are warned to take extra precaution under such rainy weather currently occurring in the province and country.

This is according to the Western Provincial Police Commander (PPC) Chief Superintendant Mathias Lenialu.

“Sea boat drivers must always have their travelling jackets, compasses and all marine equipments set before they are to travel if they have to,” said the PPC.

“For vehicle drivers, please limit the speed due to slippery conditions experienced on the roads in order to avoid accidents,” he said.

The PPC directs that if there are any emergency cases then locals are urged to quickly report to the nearest Police Stations in the province for police assistance.
