He said a detailed damage assessment report is due shortly.
 
“We also have an assessment done for Torres and the assessment team arrived back in Port Vila and we will put together an assessment report and put it together with those people that came back from Torres to do the assessment, and once that report is done, that will be made available,” he said.
