Authorities of the northern central province of Thanh Hoa have decided to relocate 322 local households from areas which are vulnerable to landslides and floods.
149 households need to be relocated before this year’s rainy season.
The households are in Muong Ly and Trung Ly communes in the mountainous district of Muong Lat.
Among those, 149 households need to be relocated before this year’s rainy season.
Under the VND65-billion (USD2.82 million) project, VND58 billion will be spent on building six resettlement areas for the households, while the remainder will be used for directly supporting them.
Muong Lat District has been urged to quickly implement the project to ensure the safety for the local households.
Muong Lat District in Thanh Hoa Province was severely hit last August by severe floods. Hundreds of houses were buried, and many villages nearly destroyed. Dtinews
