Floodwater rose in the central region
According to the plan, all residents in low-lying areas like Hanh Dung, Hanh Nhan and Hanh Duc communes in Nghia Hanh District will be evacuated on October 29. Everyone was worried that they wouldn't have anywhere to stay. Many houses were unroofed and haven't been repaired as the floodwater rose.
A total of 12,000 people in Mo Duc, Nghia Hanh and Duc Pho districts will be evacuated to avoid flooding.
Party Secretary of Quang Ngai Province Bui Thi Quynh Van and the Chairman of Quang Ngai People's Committee Dang Van Minh went on a field survey to direct the responses against flooding and landslides.
Meanwhile, 13 workers are stuck on a container house amid Tra Khuc River. Because of strong currents, Quang Ngai authorities had to ask reservoirs to temporarily stop discharging water so that they could carry out the rescue mission.
Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Nguyen Xuan Cuong issued an urgent directive on October 28 to the authorities and reservoir managers in Danang, Quang Nam, Quang Ngai and Kon Tum to evacuate residents accordingly to avoid flooding.
The authorities must also send employees to regulate traffic so drivers can avoid flooded areas.
