In order to protect the rice crops, local people had to set up sandbags to consolidate and prevent water volume into the farmlands.
Accordingly, the dyke work across Krong Ana and Lak districts had value of VND 300 billion and had been put into operation in 2014.
According to Mr. Minh Dong, Deputy Chairman of the People’s Committee of Krong Ana district, the local authorities planned to repair the dyke system.
In related news, Chief of the Steering Committee on Natural Disaster Prevention, Control, Search and Rescue of Ca Mau province Nguyen Long Hoai said that total loss estimated at over VND 40 billion, an increase of 10 times compared to the previous days due to heavy downpour and flash flood.
As reported, the natural disaster killed one person and two injured.
