GIA LAI (VNS)— Two teachers were washed away by a sudden flood while crossing Ta Nang stream in K'Bang District to go to school, according to Central Highland province Gia Lai's People's Committee.
Heavy rain on Thursday together with water discharged from the An Khe-Knat hydro-power reservoir, are said to have caused water levels to rise, eventually causing the flood.
Meanwhile, 10-year-old primary school student, Vuong Thi Thu Thao, in Nghia Hanh district of central Quang Ngai Province, drowned in floodwater on the way to school. . — VNS
