On Wednesday afternoon, a stretch of water spanning over 3 km and situated approximately 700 m away from the shore in the Cua Nhuong Bridge vicinity exhibited a yellowish hue, accompanied by white foamy formations on its surface. Conversely, on the opposing side, the water maintained a greyish appearance due to continued transit of ships and boats.
Central Vietnam sea parted into yellow-gray
On October 18, 2023, an intriguing sight unfolded in Ha Tinh Province as a sea region was visibly divided into two distinct parts exhibiting contrasting colors. This captivating photograph, taken by VnExpress's skilled photographer Duc Hung, captures the mesmerizing phenomenon in all its glory.
According to local reports, the separation of colors began on Tuesday and became more distinct by Wednesday. As a result, numerous individuals have been flocking to the location to capture photographs of this unusual phenomenon and share them on various social media platforms.
Nguyen Thanh Tung, a 30-year-old resident of Cam Xuyen District, expressed his astonishment at seeing the seawater exhibit two distinct colors for the first time. He credited the use of drones for capturing exceptionally unique photographs of this phenomenon.
According to Chairman Nguyen Nhu Hung of Cam Linh Commune, heavy rainfall in recent days has been identified as the primary cause for the flow of yellowish water from the land towards the sea. As a result, the deeper parts of the sea now exhibit a greyish hue.
Hung stated that this occurrence is a natural phenomenon and should not be considered as environmental pollution.
Beginning on October 10th, central Vietnam experienced an abundance of rainfall due to various factors such as cold air, high-altitude winds, and other weather phenomena.
