PLA’s Ma­cao gar­ri­son helps post-typhoon re­lief

Global Times - Weekend - - NATION -

About 1,000 sol­diers from the Peo­ple’s Lib­er­a­tion Army (PLA) Gar­ri­son in Ma­cao were mo­bi­lized on Fri­day to sup­port re­lief ef­forts from the de­struc­tion caused by Typhoon Hato in the Ma­cao Spe­cial Ad­min­is­tra­tive Re­gion (SAR).

The mo­bi­liza­tion comes at the re­quest of the Ma­cao SAR gov­ern­ment, which was ap­proved by China’s cen­tral gov­ern­ment in ac­cor­dance with the Ba­sic Law of the Ma­cao SAR and the Gar­ri­son Law of the Ma­cao SAR.

As of Fri­day, Hato had killed nine peo­ple in Ma­cao. Ma­cao is­sued its first sig­nal 10 typhoon warn­ing – its high­est storm alert – on Wed­nes­day since re­turn­ing to China in 1999. The typhoon caused a city­wide power out­age and cut network and wa­ter sup­ply, ac­cord­ing to the over­seas edi­tion of the Peo­ple’s Daily.

The PLA Gar­ri­son in Ma­cao said it will help pro­tect the lives and prop­erty of the Ma­cao res­i­dents.
