Saigon streets forecast to flood during peak hours this week

Saigon streets forecast to flood during peak hours this week

Monday, November 09, 2015, 14:20 GMT+7

There is a high chance that several streets and areas in Ho Chi Minh City will be submerged this week as rising tides of the Saigon River are expected to peak twice a day, the Southern Hydro-Meteorological Station has forecast.

The flood tides are likely to occur around 4:00 am to 6:00 am and during rush hour (4:30 pm to 6:00 pm), which will continue to affect the lives of many citizens living in some areas and contribute to traffic congestion in several routes of the city.

Downstream water levels of major rivers will also ascend along with annual rising tides, which will peak at the end of the week.

Cold fronts are expected to cover the northern region of the country in the second half of this week, along with bad weather in higher altitudes, causing rain to fall at night and temperature to be as low as 17 degrees Celsius in early mornings.

In mountainous areas, including Sa Pa in Lao Cai Province, Mau Son Mountain in Lang Son Province, Sin Ho District in Lai Chau Province, and Mu Cang Chai District in Yen Bai Province, temperatures are anticipated to drop to 10-13 degrees Celsius.

Cold snaps will also extend to central Vietnam, bringing rainstorms and a drop in night-time temperature after the first few days of mild weather in the region.

Provinces from Nghe An to Thua Thien-Hue will see temperatures as low as 19 degrees Celsius while the figure for the areas between Da Nang City and Binh Dinh Province will be around 22 degrees Celsius.

The Central Highlands should anticipate light rain and fog starting in the middle of the week, with the lowest temperature being around 14 degrees Celsius in the highland city of Da Lat.

The southern part of the country will be under the impact of a low pressure system coming from the south, resulting in rainstorms in the evening, which are forecast to decrease toward the weekend.

Temperatures on the weekend will decrease by 1-2 degrees Celsius, bringing a cool atmosphere to the region.
