Additionally, the prolonged heavy downpours and huge flooding completely destroyed eight houses and inundated around 33,527 houses in Quang Nam and Binh Dinh provinces. The functional forces evacuated nearly 6,000 families.
The natural disaster swallowed kilometers of canals, traffic routes, sea dykes and fishing ponds etc…
Amid the ongoing flooding, the National Steering Committee for Natural Disasters Prevention and Control yesterday sent an emergency alert to relevant ministries, agencies, flooding-affected provinces and cities, calling quickly implementing anti-flooding measures, evacuating residents of low- lying areas to safer places, minimizing damages of property and lives.
