PSNews – The Tan Lac District Police Station, Hoa Binh Province has deployed over 150 police officers and soldiers in collaboration with local forces to pour 100 cubic meters of soil, stone and sand on the Khi dam, reinforcing locations at risk of breaks as floodwater level remained high due to recent heavy downpours.
The Tan Lac District Police Station on September 1 informed that the impact of the tropical depression circulation from August 30 caused terrible floods in Tan Lac District with the water level on local lakes and streams rising high.
