HA NOI (VNS)— Electricity supply was fully restored last Friday in northern provinces that were badly hit by super storm Rammasun nearly a week earlier, Electricity of Viet Nam (EVN) reported.

Rammasun swept through the northern mountainous provinces on July 19, unleashing flash floods, landslides and lightning strikes. The worst hit provinces were Ha Giang, Lang Son and Lai Chau.

The storm caused heavy damage to the local power transmission network, cutting supply to 246,853 customers. Total losses and repair costs amounted to VND21.4 billion (US$ 1 million). — VNS
