Danang loses 50 metres of coastline to erosion

Erosion has eaten away an average 50 metres of coastline this

year in the city of Danang, Vietnam. According to a Thanh

Nien Daily report, the erosion is so serious that houses are being

lost to the encroaching seas. Danang has built 44km of dykes

along the coast and riverbanks, the report said, however more

are thought to be needed to prevent further damage.
