More than 3,000 people took part in a large-scale exercise on flood and storm prevention, held by the Central Steering Committee for Flood and Storm Prevention and Control, in Vu Thu District of Thai Binh Province August 10.
The exercise dealt with various situations that could occur in Thai Binh Province, such as typhoons with winds of 103-133 kilometers per hour, which could damage seaside dykes only 250km away.
Rescue missions are very difficult to execute and have exceeded the capacity of local authorities in the past, making the exercise all the more important.
