200,000 central Vietnam people likely to suffer food shortage

Quang Nam Province has asked Ministry of Labor, War Invalids and Social Affairs for 2,000 tons of rice to make up for a serious shortage caused by natural disasters.
Nearly 200,000 people could otherwise go without food, a city source said.
Last year’s long and cold winter destroyed crops, causing the food shortage.
Local authorities have so far asked the provincial administration for 2,724 tons of rice, but have only received 494 tons.
