Update: August, 30/2014 - 08:57

HCM CITY (VNS)— Chairman of the HCM City People's Committee Le Hoang Quan asked relevant organisations on Thursday to set up rescue teams on streets with many ancient trees.

On Tran Hung Dao Street from District 1 to District 5 and Nguyen Thi Minh Khai Street from District 1 to District 3, the teams would warn residents about heavy rain, strong winds and whirlwinds.

Recently the city saw heavy rain that knocked down trees, injuring pedestrians. The most serious accident happened on August 17 when a tree fell down on Nguyen Binh Khiem Street in District 1, killing one person, injuring two others and damaging some vehicles.— VNS
