Following continuous rain in Taninthayi Township, water level in Taninthayi River has reached above the danger level. Therefore, the township natural disaster management central committee is providing assistance to over 8,000 flood victims who have difficulties in accessing food and being evacuated from their houses.
The water level in Taninthayi River reached 19 feet 1 inch on the afternoon of 3 September, which is above the danger level. At present, authorities have opened eight flood relief camps in the township and about 832 persons from 179 families are temporarily sheltering at the camp.
A total of 6,762 flood victims from 71 villages and wards were moved to the houses of their relatives or to temporary relief camps. At present, about 2,858 flood victims still remain to be moved to safe places. Over 8,600 people are facing difficulties because their work areas are also flooded by river water, said U Nyan Lin Aung, township administrator.
The township natural disaster management central committee has provided victims from flood areas assistance donated by the Ministry of Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement, the Taninthayi government and other donors.
