I saw that Taiwan got hit with a massive 6.9-Magnitude earthquake today and it was making me wonder about Vietnam. I have never experienced anything outside of heavy downpours. Does this country face any sort of issue with natural disasters?
Sadly, yes. Vietnam faces a lot of issues including flfloods, storms, whirlwinds, flash floods, coastline erosion, droughts and landslides. Many people lose their homes and their lives each year down to these issues. You see the most damage further out from the cities.
I think in Vietnam, mudslides are the worst. They interrupt farming and cause all sorts of issues for travel. Not to mention people have lost their homes and their lives from them.
I have only ever heard of the flooding and landslides. I was not aware they have gotten and get earthquakes. I must not have spent enough time there to know about it.

What is coastline erosion? I have never actually heard of this before. Is it like a form of a landslide that happens near water or something?
