PM urges immediate action to deal with consequences of Doksuri

NDO – Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc asked authorities in the provinces which were struck by typhoon Doksuri to take immediate action in order to restore the power supply and clean up the damage within five days.

Phuc made the request on September 16 as he continued his visit to the central region to direct disaster relief work.

He emphasised that the local authorities must not let anyone live without shelter and in need of food, adding that competent agencies must guarantee the safety of dams and reservoirs and rapidly repair damaged roads.

In Ha Tinh province, one of the hardest hit areas, the prime minister stated that no more words are needed and the most important thing is deciding what action must be taken in order to quickly help the people return to their normal lives.

Of the 13 districts and cities of Ha Tinh province, 5 remained without power as thousands of electricity poles were knocked down by the storm.

At the meeting with Ha Tinh leaders, PM Phuc noted that the forecasting was fairly accurate and the role of public media was brought into play, helping the people to be aware of the dangers and to voluntarily take action.

Therefore, damage was minimised although Doksuri was rated as one of the most powerful storms to hit Vietnam in recent years.

Leaving Ha Tinh, PM Phuc headed to Nghe An where he urged the province to mobilise all resources to repair homes and schools in order for children to go back to school next week and so that people can quickly return to normal life.

According to the latest statistics, typhoon Doksuri has killed four people and left more than 20 other injured.
