The Prime Minister has ordered relevant authorities to keep a close eye on rainstorms in the upcoming monsoon season and to be prepared for the fallout in an effort to minimise their impact on the people and the nation
A government spokesman said that the PM had been apprised of the flood situation which is still heavily affecting eight provinces in the north of the country.
Officials expect conditions in the effected provinces to return to normal in a week’s time should there be no additional rainfall.
The Prime Minister has given preventative measures and relief efforts high priority to try and lessen any further damage caused by flooding.
He notes that the flooding is not as severe as that seen in 2011 but the situation should not be ignored with particular attention paid to areas that flooding keeps reoccurring.
He has ordered authorities to make preparations throughout September and October.
The PM has asked agencies to devise plans for Hospitals, airports and economic areas in the event of severe flooding as well as notify the public as soon as possible if they think there is danger of flooding.
The government recently enacted article 44 to bring the National Water Resource Bureau under the PM’s supervision to improve water management throughout the nation.
