THANH HOA (VNS) — Traffic was halted as major landslides hit a section of Highway 15C which links the Quan Hoa and the Muong Lat Districts of the central Thanh Hoa Province.

The landslides cut off Muong Hoa from other areas.

Heavy rains and flooding on Sunday and Monday caused hundreds of cubic meters of soil and stones to slide down on to Highway 15C, according to Luong Minh Thong, Secretary of the District Party Committee.

The floods also swept away many cattle in the National Defense Economic Unit 5 farm in Doan Ket Village of Muong Lat District, causing a loss of more than VND300 million or US$14,000.

The local authorities are coordinating with the province's transport department to clear the traffic in the area where the landslide occurred.—VNS
