IOC President announces aid for flood-hit Olympic city

IOC President Thomas Bach today announced USD 150,000 to go to help the city of PyeongChang, which was badly hit by flooding earlier this month. The city was the centre of celebration during the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018.

More than 150 people have been left homeless after the storms hit a low-lying area in the city near the PyeongChang 2018 headquarters and the Olympic Plaza. In all, more than 50 houses were affected, leaving more than 70 families homeless.
