Nearly 61,000 students could not go to school due to flooding in Vietnam’s south-central Binh Dinh Province on Tuesday, according to the provincial Committee for Disaster Prevention and Search and Rescue.

Flooding-affected students were mainly concentrated in the eastern communes of Tuy Phuoc, Phu Cat, and Phu My Districts.

The disaster prevention committee asked school management boards to closely monitor the developments of the flooding situation and the safety of their students and teachers.

Torrential rains have hammered Binh Dinh Province since Sunday, causing floods and landslides.

As of 2:00 pm on Tuesday, floodwaters killed one person, damaged nine houses, and inundated 3,171 houses across Binh Dinh. 

In terms of agriculture, over 1,500 hectares of crops were destroyed while 4.5 metric tons of rice was soaked. 

In addition, a total of 52 cattle and 5,858 poultry died while 1,333 meters of embankments, 4,026 meters of canals, 27 culverts, and 4,941 meters of riverbanks and streams were damaged.
