A flooded home in Phu Quoc

Due to the effect of Storm Wipha, Kien Giang had heavy rains from August 2 to 5. The rainfall in Phu Quoc Island during this time was 501.2mm. On August 5, the heavy rains flooded many parts of Duong Dong Town. It has flooded many houses, forced some households to evacuate and disrupted the lives of hundreds of people.

When the rains stopped on August 6 and 7, the residents returned to their houses but it suddenly rained again the next day.

Ho Van Khuong, a resident in Duong Dong Town said, "The rainfall is reaching record levels. It's very hard to live here now so many people have gone to their relatives' houses. We can't go to work and depend on donated rice and instant noodles."

Le Thi Thanh Tuyen said she collected scrap for a living and the flood had made her unemployed.


  

Many houses flooded

After being submerged in water for too long, the furniture and belongings showed signs of being damaged. Low-income workers that live in one-story rented houses are in the state of homelessness.

Doan Van Tien, chairman of Duong Dong Town, said, "The water hasn't receded completely so we can't analyse the damage. Initial statistics show that 3,000 houses were affected and 600 households need food support."

He went on to say that the authorities have used the town's budget and called for charity groups to help the locals. Starting from August 8, the volunteers of Duong Dong will provide meals to the affected households twice a day.

Doan Van Tien, chairman of Duong Dong Town, also called for donations via Dantri Newspaper. Tien said they were in need of 200 gifts that worth VND400,000 (USD17) each to buy rice, instant noodles, water and other necessities immediately.
