This morning, April 3, erosion along the Tra Noc River in Tra An Ward, Binh Thuy District, damaged seven houses. Many cracks can be seen in the area, posing more erosion risks.

While serious erosion happened at Can Tho Be Canal in Thot Not District’s Thuan Hung Ward. It caused three houses to fall into the canal and another one could collapse.
