Foreign Ministry spokesperson Le Thi Thu Hang said at a regular press conference on February 25.

She said that a majority of the 300,000 or so Vietnamese people in Texas have been seriously affected by the record-breaking snow storm and cold spell, which cut power and water supplies.

The Foreign Ministry spokesperson reported that four Vietnamese Americans were killed in a fire in the state and the Vietnamese Consulate General in Houston has contacted Vietnamese people and students in the local area to offer support.

Vietnamese citizens who are in need should contact the citizen protection hotlines of the Vietnamese Embassy in the US and the Vietnamese Consulate General in Houston, or the Citizen Protection Call Centre of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ Consular Department./.
