HCMC – The Mekong Delta province of Long An has sounded the alarm about widespread landslides along the riverbanks of Can Giuoc and Vam Co Tay.

A severe landslide has recently occurred along a 70-meter stretch of the Can Giuoc River in Can Giuoc District, with numerous cracks discovered in the surrounding areas.

Bank erosions have also been identified in a section of the Vam Co Tay River that runs through three hamlets in Thach Hoa District: Ben Ke, Nuoc Trong, and Voi Dinh. A previous landslide in the same area had caused extensive damage to a road and affected hundreds of local residents.

The provincial People’s Committee has urged relevant agencies to closely monitor the situation and develop plans for relocating people to safe areas if necessary.

Other provinces in the Mekong Delta, such as Bac Lieu and Dong Thap, have also experienced aggravated riverine land losses.

As a result of landslides, a company in Dong Hai District of Bac Lieu Province has incurred losses of 1,180 square meters of factory, concrete fencing and wastewater treatment facilities, amounting to a total cost of over VND2 billion.

In Dong Thap Province, local firms reported losses of VND500 million due to bank erosion in Tan Huu Hamlet.
