More than 6,000 pigs in a farm in the northern central province of Thanh Hoa have drowned in floods.

According to Nguyen Xuan Tung, head of the Yen Dinh District People's Committee Office, the floods have caused major losses for the locality. Around 6,000 pigs of Thong Nhat Farm died, with their bodies floating on the water surface. Meanwhile, hundreds of pigs and thousands of chicken in local households faced the same fate. 


   

Around 6,000 pigs of Thong Nhat Farm died, with their bodies floating on the water surface.


The floods have also affected up to 137 hectares of rice, more than 2,500 hectares of maize,1,453 hectares of crops and 1,012 hectares of aquatic farms. 

Nearly 100 out of 875 farms in Thanh Hoa's Yen Dinh District have been left under water.


 

“Due to the sharply rising water, we could save only around 100 pigs at Thong Nhat Farm. We are waiting for the water to retreat before we destroy the dead pigs”, Dinh added. 

 

Thousands of chicken also died due to the floods.

As of late October 12, floods had left 50 dead and missing in northern and central localities, including 12 in Thanh Hoa Province.
