Pyongyang, August 24 (KCNA) — Great efforts are directed to overcoming natural damage in rural communities of Korea.
In July and august agriculture has been subjected to big losses caused by downpours, strong winds, hail-storms and tidal waves.
In particular, the rural villages in Kaesong, south Hamgyong, south Hwanghae, north Phyongan, north Hamgyong and Kangwon provinces suffered heavy flood damage.
The people in all the rural villages are working hard to drain stagnant water from paddy and non-paddy fields and dig ditches. They are also making the most of pumping and other facilities needed for drainage.
A work to rehabilitate the railways, roads and telecommunication networks destroyed by strong rainy winds and downpours is now underway.
Workers in land and environment protection and city management domains strive to overcome natural damage.
Relief work, as well as restoration, is brisk in the afflicted areas.
