The floods razed thousands of homes, damaged numerous irrigation works, roads, schools and healthcare centres. Ms. Nga Tran, a local resident, recalled the last flood, “The flood in June was normal, but the one in September was awful. Water from Ngan Pho River began to submerge the floor, while outside it was still raining heavily. After a while the water was about one meter. I had no choice but to climb up to the attic and stay there for two days.” Like many other residents, all of Ms Nga’s furniture was covered in mud, some was completely damaged for having been soaked in the water for too long.

Audio script:
There are a number of things you can do to stay safe during an earthquake. If you are indoors, you must stay away from windows, glass or anything that could fall such as lightings. Then, take cover by getting under a stable table or something hard and wait until the quake stops. Don’t attempt to run outside during the quake because you may get badly injured. If you are outdoors during an earthquake, stay there, move away from buildings, streetlights because they may fall upon you at anytime. And if you are in a moving vehicle during an earthquake, stop as quickly as possible and stay in the vehicle. Avoid stopping near trees, buildings and utility wires. Lastly, if you are trapped under debris, try to cover your mouth with a handkerchief or clothing. Don’t keep shouting. Don’t light a match or move around for you may kick up dust. You should tap on a pipe or wall so rescuers can locate you.

Hi Charles,
Can’t wait to tell you about my recent activity to help protect the environment. You know what? I joined an environmental club and we went to West Lake to collect the rubbish there every Saturday. I started this activity three weeks ago.
It was great to go around the lake and collect the rubbish. I could see that the pavement looks much cleaner after we’d done our job. Some people, especially the children, imitate us and put their rubbish into the bins. I felt really happy.
What about you? Have you done anything to save the environment? Tell me about it, OK?
Love,
