In these days, some sections of the highway through Lam Dong Province’s Loc Chau Commune inundated after heavy downpours.
Yesterday, hundreds of drivers tried to get their vehicles through the congested road that was submerged under more than one meters of water. Heavy rains led to traffic snarls; vehicles were queuing in five kilometers.
Traffic police of Bao Loc Town were sent to the National Highway to control traffic and instruct vehicles to escape the submerged areas.
Locals along the National Highway said that the highway is submerged for these days yet the condition became worse yesterday badly affecting people’s lives.
