According to the town's Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, 100 hectares of chayote and another 100 hectares of flowers were destroyed, and all vegetables and other crops were buried by snow.

 


Heavy snowfall also led to constant traffic congestion on Highway 4D connecting Lai Chau and Lao Cai provinces. More than 50 cars were unable to continue driving, as of noon yesterday.

 


Local authorities reported that some 5,000 people flocked to Sa Pa to watch the snow, adding to the traffic congestion.


The province has quickly mobilised workers and rescuers to remove snow and assure that travel remains safe.
