Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has ordered the authorities of the central province of Quang Nam to give timely support to flood-hit residents so that they can stabilise their livelihoods soon.
Inspecting post-flood recovery activities in Tam Quang commune, Nui Thanh district on November 1, the Government leader asked for drastic efforts to clean up the environment and repair public facilities like schools and hospitals to serve local people's need.
He wished that localities which have suffered damage from storm Molave, the ninth of its kind hitting the country since the beginning of this year, will enhance resilience to push ahead flood recovery while gearing up for the upcoming storm.
PM Phuc sent his kind regards and sympathy from Party and State leaders to local residents, expressing his hope that local authorities and people will soon overcome consequences of the natural disaster.
On the occasion, he presented gifts to 30 households in Tam Quang commune, whose houses collapsed due to impacts of storm Molave, and visited victims of the storm at Quang Nam General Hospital.

Earlier, PM Phuc and his entourage visited and presented gifts to several poor families in Tu Nghia district and Chau O town's secondary school in Binh Son district of central Quang Ngai province. These families and the school suffered heavy losses caused by the storm.
Storm Molave swept through many localities in the central region, causing torrential downpours and strong wind in the night of October 27.
It destroyed dozens of houses and blew the roofs of tens of thousands of others.
After making a landfall in the region from Da Nang city to Phu Yen province in the afternoon of October 28, the storm weakened into a tropical depression, delivering drenching rains and strong gusts to central localities.
Quang Nam province appeared to be among the hardest-hit localities.
