Two people swept away in flash floods
HA NOI (VNS)— Flash floods, triggered by heavy downpours during the past three days, swept away two people in central Quang Nam and Central Highland Dak Lak provinces. One has been confirmed dead.
The local steering committee for Flood Prevention and Control said the victims, an 18-year-old female and a 30 year-old male were from Dak Lak and Quang Nam Province.
The water levels were reportedly 60-80mm, causing serious flooding and damage to property. In Ea H'el District alone, flash floods swept away two bridges, submerged 490 houses and damaged 1,800ha of crops.
The water levels in local rivers were forecast to increase due to the discharge of hydro-power reservoirs. — VNS
