QUANG NINH — Authorities of the northern province of Quang Ninh's Dam Ha District have deployed rescue teams to fix the damage resulting from a break in the Dam Ha Dong irrigation dam's auxiliary dam last week.

No casualties were reported, but water, mud and garbage flooded a number of agencies and residents' homes. The district's health clinic was hardest hit, with much of its equipment and furniture destroyed.

The teams cleaned affected areas and raised funds to help affected agencies and households recover quickly from the damage caused by the break.

The provincial People's Committee urged local authorities to regularly check dams and reservoirs and take measures to protect residents from mudslides and floods during the rainy season. — VNS
