Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers’ Party of Korea, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the armed forces of the DPRK, inspected the Taechong-ri area of Unpha County, North Hwanghae Province, which was hit by flood.

Due to consecutive days of torrential rain and rainstorm recently caused by the seasonal rainy front, the waterway levee gave way in the area of Taechong-ri of Unpha County, leaving more than 730 single-floor houses and 600-odd hectares of paddy fields inundated and 179 blocks of dwelling houses collapsed.

After hearing the report on the situation in the Taechong-ri area where lots of dwelling houses and a large area of arable land were submerged, the Supreme Leader went to the spot to learn about the actual conditions.

Saying he was really relieved to hear that there was no casualty as all the residents of Unpha County had been evacuated to safe areas in advance, he called on leading organs in the county including Party and government organs, working people’s organizations and public security organs to responsibly conduct the work of putting up those who were left homeless at offices including those at the Party committee and people’s committee of the county, public buildings and private houses, to stabilize their living and comfort them.

He ordered the relevant sector to submit a document on supplying every household in the afflicted area with the food grain reserve of the Chairman of the State Affairs Commission.

It is of primary importance to immediately supply the victims with bedding, daily necessaries, medicines and other necessities to stabilize their living as early as possible, he said, entrusting the task entirely to the departments of the Party Central Committee and the families of officials at its headquarters.

He gave an instruction to organize the rehabilitation headquarters with cadres of the relevant departments of the Party Central Committee and the Ministry of the People’s Armed Forces and to get the headquarters to size up the damage on the spot first to correctly calculate the materials and forces needed for the rehabilitation before reporting to him.

A central design force should be dispatched to draw up a detailed plan for building houses for 800 families in the farm village of Unpha County hit by flood as a model and complete the project at the highest level and at an earliest date possible, he instructed.

Saying he decided to mobilize the army for this rehabilitation, too, he ordered the Korean People’s Army to form a necessary force and urgently deploy it and to give precedence to the arrangement of the wrecked houses, roads and zones together with the county people.

Pointing to the importance of taking measures to supply such construction materials as cement needed for the rehabilitation, he gave an instruction to use the strategic reserves of the Chairman of the State Affairs Commission according to the calculated amount.
