Localities gearing up to cope with storm

Four people have been killed and four other injured as storm Haitang hit the mainland.

This was announced at a meeting of the Central Steering Committee for Flood and Storm Prevention and the National Committee for Search and Rescue, which was chaired by Deputy Prime Minister Hoang Trung Hai on September 28.

According to the National Committee for Search and Rescue, 128 houses have been damaged and 6,000 hectares of rice and other farm produce have been submerged under floodwaters.

The High Command of the Border Guard has called ashore 30,000 boats with a total of 145,487 fishermen and is keeping contact with three boats, which are on their way back.

The Central Steering Committee for Flood and Storm Prevention said another stronger storm, Nesat, has passed Luzon Island of the Philippines and is moving east towards the northern East Sea.

Storm Nesat is forecast to hit Vietnam on the evening of September 30 and early October 1.

Deputy PM Hai urged localities prepare plans to evacuate people from danger areas.
