Yesterday afternoon, the Ho Ho Hydropower Plant opened three sluice gates to discharge water with a volume of 1,219 cubic meters per second.
Deputy Chairman of the People’s Committee of Ha Tinh province Dang Ngoc Son checked water release from the hydropower plant and asked the director board to closely collaborate with the local authority in eyeing rainfall and water volume to timely release floodwater.
Earlier, the localities took households near the dangerous areas to safe places.
Long- lasting downpour experienced in the central provinces of Nghe An, Thanh Hoa and Quang Tri, triggered flooding and killed at least six people and reported missing.
Currently, the local authorities and functional forces have made their effort to seek the missing victims.
