LAI CHAU (VNS) – The Chu Va 6 Bridge was wiped away on Sunday by floodwaters, turning Chu Va 6 hamlet into an island.

The hamlet is located in Son Binh Commune, Tam Duong District, Lai Chau Province.

Bui Quang Vinh, deputy chairman of Tam Duong District People's Committee, said a delegation was sent to the site and officials were building a temporary bridge.

The bridge, which cost more than VND100 million (US$ 4,500), was built to connect Chu Va 6 and Chu Va 8 hamlets following the collapse of the original Chu Va 6 Bridge, which killed eight people in February. — VNS
