Hanoi (VNA) – The Vietnam Electricity (EVN) has finished fixing the middle- and low-voltage power transmission lines and resume power supply for some central provinces hit by Typhoon Doksuri, including Dong Hoi city of Quang Binh, and downtowns of Nghe An and Ha Tinh.

The EVN has mobilised nearly 200 people to fix the electricity pole number 48 of the 220kV transmission line in Vung Ang-Dong Hoi which has been submerged in floodwater. The work is expected to finish on September 18.

Earlier, as requested by the provincial steering committees on natural disaster control and search and rescue, EVN lowered the water level of hydropower reservoirs of Trung Son in Thanh Hoa, Ho Ho in Ha Tinh and A Vuong in Quang Nam, thus creating new space to receive floodwater.

At the end of September 15, water outlets of some reservoirs were closed.

Currently, the EVN is mobilising resources to restore transmission lines to resume power supply for customers as soon as possible, with priority to public works such as hospitals and water plants.

Typhoon Doksuri, the 10th of its kind arising in the East Sea in 2017, directly devastated central provinces from Ha tinh to Quang Binh, while affecting coastal localities from Thanh Hoa to Quang Ngai, boasting strong winds and heavy rains.-VNA
