The section, located in Cho Moi District’s Hoa An Commune, is near another eroded area of 2,000 square metres that fell into the river on August 10. The land was being used to grow flowers for Tet (Lunar New Year) next year.

At least 19 erosion spots, covering a total length of 1,738 metres along the riverbank, have been detected, according to the provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.

The Cho Moi People’s Committee has asked residents to move their flower plants out of the area.

The erosion has affected 172 houses and caused 20 houses to collapse into the Hau River, with damage estimated at more than VND89 billion (US$3.9 million).
