PM demands urgent actions in response to powerful storm Chaba

(VOVWORLD) - Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh has issued an official dispatch, demanding urgent actions be taken in response to approaching storm Chaba. Chaba, the first tropical storm to hit the East Sea this year, is predicted to gain more strength and cause torrential rains in the northern region between July 2-7.

The PM asked ministries, sectors, and related localities to continue calling on vessels at sea to move out of dangerous areas and take shelter while ensuring safety for people and vehicles involved in aquaculture, fishing, and other activities at sea. Localities must have plans to evacuate people living in high-risk areas of flash floods and landslides.

They are ordered to ensure the safety of reservoirs, especially small hydroelectric reservoirs, key irrigation reservoirs for flood discharge, and arrange forces for emergencies, he added.

Localities have to prepare plans to protect agricultural and industrial production, prevent flooding in urban areas and residential areas, and be ready to mobilize forces, supplies, and vehicles to rescue people and resolve incidents to ensure smooth traffic on main roads.
