Deputy PM orders quick responses to storm aftermath

The Saigon Times Daily

HCMC -  Deputy Prime Minister Trinh Dinh Dung on November 9 chaired a meeting with ministries and agencies to find ways to quickly deal with the aftermath of Tropical Storm Damrey which battered central and south-central provinces, the Government news website reports.

Dung asked relevant ministries, agencies and localities to seriously implement instructions by the Prime Minister to support storm-hit people to stabilize life and production.

Ministries and agencies must send delegations to storm-struck areas to help local governments and people as directed by the Central Steering Committee for Natural Disaster Prevention and Control, Dung stressed.

The Ministries of Finance, and Labor-Invalids-Social Affairs were told to inspect the state of storm-hit localities so that the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development can provide adequate food, water and other necessities.

The Ministry of Transport was assigned to work with police to ensure traffic safety.

He told the Ministries of Industry-Trade and Agriculture-Rural Development to ensure safety in areas around lakes, dams and dykes.

Local authorities should visit families affected the storm, the strongest in 16 years, especially those having members killed or missing, or houses destroyed.

The Ministries of National Defense and Public Security will have to send people to the affected areas to help people repair homes and ensure public order. Meanwhile, the Ministry of Health will direct health centers to support local authorities and people to do the cleanup to prevent diseases.

He asked the State Bank of Vietnam to consider cutting or reducing interest rates for loans and offering new preferential loans for storm-hit people.

Tropical Storm Damrey had left at least 91 people dead and 23 others missing by Wednesday.  Nearly 1,500 houses in Quang Nam, Quang Ngai, Binh Dinh, Phu Yen, Khanh Hoa, Gia Lai, Dak Lak, Dak Nong, and Lam Dong collapsed.
