Many large potholes appeared on a section of National Highway No. 1 in Ha Tinh Province, north-central Vietnam after floodwater receded in the locality this week.
Along the section of National Highway No. 1 running from Thach Ha District to Can Loc District, the road surface was damaged and filled with big potholes, posing a high risk of traffic accidents.
On the part of Viet Tien Commune, Thach Ha District, the damage was so serious that local authorities had to set up barriers and a warning sign to alert commuters.

Workers were tasked with patching up the road surface as a temporary measure on Tuesday morning.
Ha Tinh as well as several other north-central provinces have been struck by serious and prolonged flooding in the past few days.
The inundation was a result of torrential rains brought about by the circulation of Storm Noru, which hit the country last week.
