PYONGYANG, February 11. /TASS/. The US government decided to send humanitarian aid to North Korea, hit by floods last year, North Korea’s state KCNA news agency said Saturday.
The floods that hit the Hamgyong province in the country’s northeast last year are considered the worst in the past 60 years. Between August 29 to September 2, the region saw from 290 to 320 millimeters of rainfall that caused the Tumangan river to burst its banks and inundate thousands of homes and public buildings, damage roads and infrastructure and destroy crops.
In total, over 130 people died and about 400 went missing. According to Red Cross estimates, about 600,000 citizens were affected.
