My Linh and her crew went to Cu Vai Village for a charity project about using solar power to bring electricity to the mountainous areas. However, due to heavy rains, floods and landslides, Cu Vai Village was isolated. 

Linh's co-workers said they lost contact with her the whole day on October 11. On October 12, Linh went on the social media and assured her fans about her safety and said that they were still trying to complete the project. She hoped for the rains to stop quickly to prevent more damage to the mountainous areas.

According to Linh, after living in a house without a door, there is no power and their meals only consist of bamboo shoots and rice, she was even more determined to complete the project.

In the morning of October 12, My Linh was still stuck in Cu Vai. However, she has to go to China in eight days to participate in Miss World 2017.

Yen Bai provincial authorities are trying to restore phone signals and connection with the village. The only way to currently access the village is to walk a 6-km-long mud road and face possible landslides.
