Previously, the military region mobilized 300 troops from its armed forces, the Nghe An provincial Military and Border Guard Commands, and the Ky Son district Military Command to help locals overcome the consequences of the flash flood.

The rain has stopped, but the flood water from the upstream is still pouring heavily, dividing roads and even isolating some areas, causing numerous difficulties for the local forces.

The military region has divided forces to conduct missions in each area. Particularly, the region’s armed forces help people in Hoa Son village, support people in Son Ha village, and the public security force assist people in Muong Xen townlet.

For the families whose houses were swept away by the flood, the local authorities will arrange concentrated accommodations or build tents or temporary houses for them.

After inspecting the real situations, Major General Le Hong Nhan, Deputy Commander of Military Region 4, stressed that the top priority is to overcome the flood’s consequences at State facilities and then schools. He urged the local forces to support policy beneficiaries and severely damaged families first while ensuring enough food and necessities for people in isolated areas.

On behalf of the military region’s leadership, Major General Le Hong Nhan inquired after and presented gifts to the flood-affected families.

Here are several photos of the local armed forces helping locals overcoming the flood’s consequences.
