KYANGIN — Due to the rising tides of Ayeyawady River from erosion, 13 families from four villages in Yelekyun village in Kyangin Township were evacuated to safer locations on 3 September.
A total of 162 families have so far been moved to shelters and are being provided with assistance from township officials, volunteers, members of social organisations and local elders.
Look-out sentries are also on stand-by at the township’s embankment areas. Win Bo (Myanaung IPRD)
