Reinforcement of dangerous houses comes first

Orderly rescue after the earthquake

"The walls are cracked, the tiles are off, but the wooden frame of the house holds on!" Standing in front of the new residence, Liao Guoyuan, a villager in Hexi Village, Cangshan West Town, Yangbi County, introduced to reporters the old residence that had not yet been demolished on the mountainside in the distance.

"A few years ago, the government funded the reinforcement of the mortise and tenon joints of the old house, so that the house could withstand the test of the earthquake. The epicenter was in Xiuling Village, Cangshan West Town, and there were no deaths due to the collapse of houses in the earthquake, and even very few people were injured by the earthquake. Luo Wenxiong, deputy mayor of Cangshan West Town, said that Yunnan Province has continued to promote the reinforcement and renovation project of dilapidated houses in rural areas, which has greatly reduced the casualties caused by the earthquake.

"Earthquake prevention and disaster reduction and improving the seismic strength of houses are the most effective preventive measures." Zhang Shiwei, secretary of the Yangbi County Party Committee, said. Due to the occurrence of many pre-earthquakes above magnitude 6 before the occurrence of the 4.5 magnitude earthquake, the local people were more vigilant; and as early as several pre-earthquakes, the Yangbi County Party Committee and the county government had set up an earthquake relief headquarters in Xiuling Village. At the same time, the structure of the house is still in place, which also reduces the difficulty of personnel search and rescue, and some people with minor injuries can be found as soon as possible and treated in time.

In fact, after the main earthquake, the staff of the Yangbi County Earthquake Relief Command rushed to Xiuling Village, the epicenter, in less than an hour. Within two hours, the first rescue forces from outside the county arrived at the scene to participate in the rescue. "When I saw the people from the party committee and government coming, my heart was calmed at once!" Zhang Jiancheng, a villager in Xiuling Village, said that when the earthquake occurred on May 2021, 5, many people were already living in tents early the next morning. More than 21,602 party members and cadres from 5000 grassroots party organizations and more than <>,<> party members and cadres in Yangbi County set up "vanguard teams of party members", "shock teams of party members" and "service stations of party members" at the earthquake relief site.

Luo Wenxiong calculated an economic account for reporters: "The government subsidy for strengthening a household is about 2000,<> yuan, but through reinforcement, most houses only need to be repaired after the earthquake, without reconstruction, which reduces the cost of house reconstruction; For families, a person's injury or disability due to an earthquake not only means one less laborer, but also an additional financial burden. ”

Preventive measures to strengthen seismic strength and rapid and orderly rescue have built a line of defense for the safety of people's lives.

The reconstruction of private houses is fast

The masses moved to new homes as soon as possible

Few casualties do not mean that the disaster is not serious: before the earthquake, many farmers lived in old houses built in the last century, although the structure was there, but the walls were torn and collapsed, and there were many houses in Yangbi County that needed to be demolished and rebuilt.

Funding is critical for post-disaster recovery. "For the funds of the private housing reconstruction project, the relevant departments not only specially increased the budget, but also issued funds in advance, ensuring the quality of the restoration and reconstruction of private houses and accelerating the speed of recovery and reconstruction." Dong Jianxun said. In addition to subsidies for the restoration and reconstruction of private houses by governments at all levels, Yangbi County has also launched "Housing Loan" and "Happy Home Loan", which will give interest discounts for up to 5 years for the part of the reconstruction target loan within 3,50 yuan, and the county finance will give interest discount subsidies at 5% of the basic interest rate of the loan; Actively coordinate with county real estate enterprises, on the basis of paying the reconstruction fund subsidy, real estate enterprises will give preferential treatment of 20,23-52,14 yuan per house, and leverage bank loans of <>.<> billion yuan to invest in post-disaster recovery and reconstruction of private houses; In order to solve the problem of building materials supply, the county government coordinated <> building materials suppliers to supply cement, steel and other building materials at preferential rates, and also provided <> sets of construction drawings for the public to choose from.

On January 2022, 1, Yangbi fully completed the task of restoring and rebuilding private houses, and the people in the disaster-stricken areas warmed up in their new homes. In the foothills of Cangshan Mountain, on the bank of the Yangjiang River, the new houses in Xiuling Village are scattered. "If you hadn't walked into the memorial hall built by the village, you wouldn't have seen any traces of the earthquake." Walking along the paved new roads in the village, Zhang Jiancheng said.

"I saved some money before, the government made up some of it, plus bank loans, and now I have a new house." I didn't expect to move to a new home so soon and return to normal life! Yang Ruyi from Huai'an Village, Cangshan West Town, Yangbi County, moved into a new house and opened a commissary, earning 20,000 or 30,000 yuan a year. Now, she has a little more hope for the future, "As long as people are okay, the money can always be earned." ”

As a traditional walnut producing area, the per capita walnut planting area in Yangbi County is nearly 10 mu, so how to stabilize the price of sales is directly related to the income of the people.
