PANO - These days, as cold spells have reached Northern localities, temperatures plummet in several provinces including Lao Cai, Ha Giang, Cao Bang and Bac Kan.

Snowfall started on the top of Fansipan Mountain as the temperature fell below minus 1 degree Celsius. The cold weather exerted negative effects on the daily life of local people and caused difficulties to patrol and border management activities of the armed forces in the locality.

Despite the harsh weather conditions, the officers and soldiers of Y Ty Border Station under the Lao Cai provincial Border Guard Command overcame difficulties to conduct patrol along the borderline while supporting local people to fight cold weather.
