QUANG NINH (VNS)— As many as 17 households in Cam Pha City in northern Quang Ninh Province were moved to safe ground on Wednesday, according to lieutenant Nguyen Van Ton from the city Military Command.

The emergency relocation follows a number of sinkholes created by land subsidence in recent days in the city's Cam Dong Ward; in which a local man was injured and houses damaged.

According to initial results of one geological survey from the Geophysical Technology JSC under the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, underground water had eroded the soil under the houses' foundation, causing the depression. — VNS
