Central province faces severe drought

Update: May, 29/2013 - 11:15

NGHE AN (VNS)— A heavy drought in many areas of central Nghe An Province has negatively affected rice crops and disrupted the daily lives of local residents, authorities have said.

A recent report from the provincial Department of Irrigation showed that as many as 400 hectares of rice fields and 200 hectares of sugar-cane in Que Phong District have dried up. Water in the province's reservoirs has also decreased to below average levels.

Prolonged hot weather has been blamed for the water shortage in the area.— VNS
