According to the report, the storm kills one person and ripped roofs off 2,751 houses. Over 2,000 hectares of sesame and 3,000 hectares of watermelon are destroyed; thousands of trees are fallen.

The National Steering Committee for Natural Disaster Prevention and Control shall cooperate with ministries, sectors and provinces to search for lost people, support the ones affected by storm, and clean up the environment to prevent diseases.

He also urged units to move people out of dangerous areas prone to flash flood, proactively prevent landslide, and protect the dam as well as reservoirs.
