However, some localities have yet to access electricity due to inundation.

In Phu Yen, several parts of Phu Hoa, Dong Xuan, Song Cau, Dong Hoa, Tuy An districts and Tuy Hoa city remain under water.

In Khanh Hoa, one transformer has been isolated due to flooding from November 5.

Meanwhile in the Central Highlands province of Dak Lak, the provincial power company resumed power supply in all Krong Nang and Krong Ana districts.

As of 8am on November 7, eight hydropower reservoirs were draining away water.

The EVN’s hydropower plants and local authorities have worked closely together to follow reservoir operation regulations and flush water away as directed by local steering committees for disaster prevention and control./.
