The National Steering Committee for Natural Disaster Prevention and Control on Sunday ordered ministries, sectors, and localities to deliver aid and daily necessities to affected people so that no one is left in hunger, cold, and illnesses. They were asked to review local houses and infrastructure damaged by flooding and landslides and evacuate people from high-risk areas.


The Committee asked for a close watch of super typhoon Goni, the strongest typhoon of 2020 which is forecast for approach Vietnam on Wednesday. Authorities need to keep fishing vessels operating offshore updated with the storm track to avoid dangerous zone, get search and rescue forces ready round the clock, maintain road and rail traffic, strictly monitor fishing farms, and protect coastal works, the Committee said.
