Repairmen are working hard to resume electricity for households in northern mountainous provinces, whose power supply has been cut off since the second East Sea tropical storm Rammasun made landfall last week.

While the power transmission system in Cao Bang province has been fixed, that in Quang Ninh, Bac Kan, Ha Giang, Dien Bien, Bac Giang and Lang Son are under repair, according to the Electricity of Vietnam (EVN).

Latest statistics show that as of July 21, at least 11 people were killed, two missing and four injured after Rammasun swept through these localities.

Heavy rain has collapsed nearly 6,500 houses and submerged about 3,300 ha of crops, while landslides have blocked traffic in many highways and provincial roads.

Quang Ninh and Son La suffered serious economic loss of around 2 billion VND (95,200 USD), each.

The typhoon’s impacts have not gone yet as heavy rains are forecast to continue in northern mountainous provinces.

The super typhoon has claimed at least 94 lives in the Philippines and 26 lives in China.-VNA
