The Electricity of Vietnam (EVN) is working hard to fix the damage caused by typhoon Kalmaegi, striving to resume power supply to all of its customers by September 19.

According to the corporation, a total of 4,019 transformer stations were damaged, cutting off nearly 290,000 customers in 505 communes in the northern region.

At present, 75,972 customers still have no electricity, predominantly in the provinces of Lang Son, Bac Giang, Thai Nguyen and Hung Yen.

Kalmaegi, the third tropical storm so far this year, swept through a number of northern localities on the evening of September 16, claiming at least 10 lives and injuring even more.-VNA
