After floods in late August, many bridges in Văn Luông commune of Tân Son district, the northern midland province of Phu Tho have collapsed or been seriously damaged. Local people have to brave dangerous spillways to take their kids to school and go to work.

 

The devastating floods in late August damaged two bridges in Van Luong commune, creating difficulties in daily life for local people. As the new school year begins, every day they have to travel nearly 20 km to take their kids to school.

 

There are nearly 8,000 residents and 17 administrative areas in Van Luong commune. Most schools and medical stations are on the other side of the river. The broken bridges not only affect daily life but also cause risks for local people.
