Nhan Dan reporters have arrived at the scene to document the heavy losses to locals after floods and landslides swept across Lung Tam commune, in Quan Ba district, in the northernmost province of Ha Giang.

The road from the Commune People's Committee to Lung Tam Thap and Tung Nun hamlets has been cleared but is still full of mud and flood debris.



One of the worst affected areas is Tung Nun hamlet. Houses and crops were washed away in one night.
