A centre for early warning and management of storms and floods was established in the central city of Da Nang on August 9 to help the city improve its early-warning capacity and minimize damages as the storm season is coming soon.


The US$ 450,000 centre, funded by the US Pacific Command, covers more than 1,000 sq.m and includes a three-storey office block.


Phung Viet Tan, Vice Chairman of the Da Nang People’s Committee, said Da Nang is often hit by natural disasters that cause loss of life and property. The centre will help Da Nang take more initiatives in preventing storms and floods.


US Ambassador to Vietnam Michael Michalak said this is the US Pacific Command’s third charity project in Da Nang.


He said the US will continue providing early-warning equipment to seven central provinces to ensure the centre is operating well.
