More than 10 staff were loading up large trucks with tents orderly at the provincial relief supplies storage center in Quandu Avenue, Xianning at 7: 00 a.m. on July 24. This is the positive response to the call of the Department of Emergency Management of Hubei Province to support relief supplies to Henan.
Extremely heavy rainfall lashed Henan Province since July 17, which was rarely seen in history, with rainstorm and extraordinary rainstorm in most areas. On the evening of July 23rd, Xianning Emergency Management Bureau received an order from Department of Emergency Management of Hubei Province, which asked for the rapid transfer of 500 tents to the disaster areas in Henan Province.
After receiving the order, Xianning Emergency Management Bureau attached great importance to it and quickly started the preliminary work of transportation. From 7: 00 a.m. on July 24, more than ten staff of Xianning Emergency Management Bureau came to the relief supplies storage center and carried the heavy tents to the trucks one by one. It took only three hours to count, carry, pack and load 500 tents worth 1 million yuan.
After loading, the transport vehicles will first arrive at the central warehouse in Dongxihu District of Wuhan, and then head to the designated location of the disaster areas as quickly as possible. (By Wu Wenjin/Xianning Daily)
