Dozens of hectares of locals’ agricultural production land in the central province of Quang Ngai have been swept away due to landslides along rivers. In some places, locals have even been forced to evacuate from their village.

 

Landslides along a 2km-long stretch of the Ve River have influenced the lives of some 400 local households. Local people and authorities have petitioned for higher authorities to seek solutions to this crisis.

Local authorities are required to try their utmost to solve the problem in order to ensure the lives and assets of locals. However, investing in a consolidated dam needs a huge sum that the local budget can hardly afford. –VNA
