VietNamNet Bridge - Local authorities and people in Quang Ninh Province are still trying to clean up the severe damage created by five days of torrential rain.
To date, 23 people have been reported either dead or missing.
The province has spent a total of VND15 billion (US$740,000) on financial assistance to hundreds of families left homeless by the deluge.
Yesterday, most electricity supply was reconnected as the provincial power company replaced damaged lines and reinforced transmission stations.
The heavy rains destroyed water supply pipes and flooded several water supply stations in Cam Pha and Ha Long cities. However, continuing rain has presented many problems.
Authorities said it might take one or two weeks for supply to resume.
Workers have been cleaning up the mess to prevent any outbreaks of disease.
The provincial authority has asked all agencies and residents to help collect waste and debris.
People in Mong Duong Ward of Cam Pha City have been told to shift to safe places due to a high risk of landslides and further flooding.
Yesterday, the Viet Nam Red Cross donated supplies worth VND160 million ($7,200) to those affected.
The assistance included money, blankets, mosquito nets, water containers and antiseptic medicines.
