At a launching ceremony, Tran Ngoc Thanh reported that the recent floods triggered by prolonged heavy rain caused massive losses, especially to the provinces of Quang Binh, Quang Tri, Thua Thien Hue and Ha Tinh, leaving more than 100 dead and missing; destroying thousands of homes and hectares of crops, and leading to severe travel disruption. Thousands of homes are in dire need of assistance.

At the ceremony, Nguyen Tan Tuan expressed condolences to the families of victims and urged local departments and organizations to mobilize civil servants and laborers to donate in support of the flood-stricken communities.
 
At the ceremony, more than 180 organizations and individuals in the province donated more than VND406 million, including VND328 million in cash and more than VND68 million registered for donation.
