BINH THUAN (VNS) — The southern Binh Thuan Province's authorities and experts from the Central Natural Disaster Prevention Department are working out measures to cope with coastal landslides caused by sea erosion.

Deputy Director of the department Tang Quoc Chinh said on Wednesday while checking the eroded area that this was the second time the experts had come here to conduct a survey. "However, this time, we invited by Pro Marcel Stive from the Delft Technology University of the Netherlands to join the delegation to take advantage of his opinions on measures and orientations in preventing erosion in this area," he said.

Lien Huong town in Tuy Phong District is among the three places that has been hit the hardest by sea erosion, with 29 households having completely collapsed.

In addition, strong waves caused landslides along one kilometre of the coastline, intruded 10m into the coastal land and damaged 41 houses in Duc Long Ward and Tien Thanh Commune in Phan Thiet City. — VNS
