NINH THUAN (VNS) – The People's Committee of central Ninh Thuan province will advance VND40 billion (nearly US$2 million) from the budget to deal with drought.

Severe drought has damaged more than 6,000 hectares of crops and killed hundreds of cattle.

About 35,100 local residents and 150,000 head of cattle are facing a lack of water. Little rain is expected before September. — VNS
