Deputy PM calls on localities to overcome consequences as Typhoon Noru weakens
VOV.VN - Deputy Prime Minister Le Van Thanh has requested that central provinces continue monitoring the aftermath of Typhoon Noru, review any damage caused, and quickly provide support for people in areas hard hit by the event as part of efforts to overcome the storm consequences.
Deputy PM Thanh, who is also head of the Frontline Steering Committee for response to Typhoon Noru, made the statement at a working session held on September 28 with localities to discuss the developments and effects of Typhoon Noru.
He emphasized that despite being a powerful storm, central localities made meticulous preparations aimed at coping with the weather event, with no fatalities or major damage being reported so far.
He therefore called on localities to maintain a high level of vigilance and strictly monitor the storm circulation, urgently examine property damage and losses, timely support residents in all affected areas, especially submerged places, and ensure smooth transportation can be done in a safe manner before sending students to school.
Numerous representatives from the People's Committee of Da Nang, Quang Ngai, Quang Tri, and Thua Thien Hue said that no human loss has been recorded in their localities so far, adding that the typhoon had uprooted trees, unroofed several houses, and caused power outages as well as submerging many places in the region.
