According to the Vietnam Border Guard Command, border guard units stationed in coastal areas from Quang Ninh to Thanh Hoa provinces sent up flares at 15 locations to warn local people of the approaching storm.

The border guard force has also worked with localities, local households, and ships’ owners to update around 60,000 fishing ships on the the developments of the storms and guide them to take shelters. As of July 2, all ships operating in the areas moved out out dangerous areas.

* The Quang Ninh provincial Military Command has strictly observed duty regulations and closely followed the developments of the first storm and its circulation.

The unit has cooperated with other forces to review the number of ships operating at sea and update ships’ owners on the developments of the storm to help them take shelters from it.

In addition, the province’s armed force has taken measures to protect safety of barracks and prepared personnel and vehicles to help local people respond to the storm and deal with circumstances.

* Since the first storm and its circulation may cause heavy rain, leading to landslides and flooding in localities in Military Region 1, the Military Region 1 Command has directed its agencies and units to strictly maintain duty regulations and closely follow and update local people on the developments of the storm.

The Military Commands of provinces in the region have directed their affiliated units to advise local Party committees and authorities to develop plans to evacuate locals to safer areas and protect safety of troops, barracks, weapons, equipment, and local people.
