Chairman of Trung Khanh District People's Committee, Nguyen Thanh Hai, said that they have prepared to provide support for local people if needed.

"No damage has been reported so far in the recent earthquakes," he said. "We are co-ordinating with geological experts to watch carefully any future quakes so that we can be prepared."
