VietNamNet Bridge – Scientists and local authorities in central Thanh Hoa Province have conducted surveys and held a conference to discuss the damage to Ho Citadel, online news Dan Tri reported.
The damage occurred due to the recent storm that struck the region.
Previously, according to the judgement of Thanh Hoa Province’s authority, the 600-year-old citadel, which was recognised as a World Cultural Heritage by UNESCO in 2011, saw its wall deteriorating due to natural influences over the years.
Besides this, the impact of the tenth storm that hit the region in September caused severe erosion of a part of the citadel wall that is located within Vinh Tien Commune in Vinh Loc District. The eroded part is estimated to be 6.9m long, and 4m high.
