Pyongyang, August 28 (KCNA) — Efforts are underway in all parts of Korea to clear away the damage from abnormal weather.
Especially, South Hamgyong, North and South Phyongan, North and South Hwanghae and Kangwon provinces, Kaesong and Nampho concentrate efforts on rehabilitation in the wake of rainstorm and windstorm.
The national and local flood damage rehabilitation committees give priority to the supply of materials and facilities needed for rehabilitation, though they are short of everything.
The afflicted areas make the most of cement, steel, oil, timber, motors and pumping facilities.
As a result, progress has been made in the rehabilitation of railways, motorways, bridges and pylons.
Coal and ore mines concentrate on drainage to restore the submerged facilities.
Rural communities make efforts to drain stagnant water from paddy and nonpaddy fields, erect the fallen crops and remove mud and sand.
Measures are being taken to stabilize the living of the victims. Efforts are brisk to repair dwelling houses and public buildings and restore towns and villages.
Measures for medical service to the wounded and patients are also being taken.
Officials of the flood damage rehabilitation committees contact competent organs in different areas for rehabilitation.
