HCMC – Due to torrential rains brought by Super Typhoon Noru, many hydropower reservoirs in Nghe An Province have been told to discharge water to ensure the safety of residents and property.
Nghe An is home to several hydropower reservoirs in mountainous districts such as Que Phong, Ky Son, Tuong Duong, Con Cuong and Quy Chau.
Having made landfall on September 28, Super Typhoon Noru prompted multiple hydropower reservoirs in Nghe An Province to discharge water urgently on the morning of September 28-30.
Lately, Nghe An’s search and rescue authority sent an urgent notice to the People’s Committee of Que Phong District regarding the people’s safety following the discharge of water at the Nhan Hac hydropower reservoir in the district.
The reservoir discharged 500-1,000 cubic meters per second at 10:00 a.m. on September 30.
The Que Phong People’s Committee is requested to notify authorities at all levels, owners of water transport means and all people in the downstream area of the Nhan Hac Hydropower Plant to ensure the safety of life and property.
