Mountain people struggle with landslide after storm Haiyan Tin ảnh

( - After prolonged heavy rains, mountains in Son Tay District, Quang Ngai Province were eroded, causing traffic division in the area.


Due to the impact of storm Haiyan, prolonged heavy rain caused serious mountain landslides. Many roads to the communes of Son Lien, Son Long in Son Lap mountainous district were damaged, causing traffic congestion.

On the morning of November 13, though the rain stopped, large rocks kept falling down to the road, blocking inter-commune roads in this mountainous district.
The road to RaPan Village, Long Son commune, is eroded, making a deep stream of over 3 kilometers long.
As thousands of rocks were blocking the road, people struggled to find direction to the nearby hills to overcome landslide points.
Many teachers of the Lien Son secondary school struggle with the bikes in the mud. Mr. Le Hoai Thanh, Head of the Education & Training Department of Son Tay District says: "In the flood season, the education sector is always worried of the landslides and rising water, which are very dangerous for both teachers and students."
Thanh adds that in these days, teachers at the elementary, junior schools in Lien Son, Son Long and Son Lap commune faced a lot of difficulties going to school since they had to carry their vehicles through the muddy roads.
A worker of a hydro-power plant carries his sandals and backpack to get through the mountain landslide point in Nuoc Vuong village in Lien Son commune.
A veteran carries a child through the muddy road.
Son Tay district chairman Le Van Tung says the local government has mobilized all forces to clear landslide points.
