Police in Vanuatu have deemed some areas in Port Vila off limits in a bid to stop any attempts at looting tonight.
The acting commissioner, Colonel Job Esau says while there haven't been any serious instances of looting in Port Vila since tropical cyclone Pam struck on Friday, police aren't taking precautions.
Colonel Esau says police have set specific times for when people can't move around specific premises, such as shopping areas and the waterfront, to make sure people don't take advantage of the damage.
"Facilities, installations, private sectors, and also from the yachts that have been washed away by the cyclone. Those are the only areas we have been targetting at the moment, and also some other very affected locations in and around Port Vila."
Job Esau also says all police officers have been recalled from leave in preparation for what will be a massive operation.
