A group of youngsters in the central Vietnamese city of Da Nang decided to face the agonizing flooding on Sunday in the most enjoyable way possible, as they took to a local street for kayaking and standup paddleboarding.
The fun took place along Ham Nghi Street in Thanh Khe District in the afternoon, with the young men paddling along the inundated road on about ten kayaks and standup paddleboards (SUPs).
One man was seen carrying a girl on his kayak as he paddled through vehicles submerged in rainwater.
Ham Nghi Street was inundated with rainwater as high as 50 to 60 centimeters, making it a perfect racing track for the team.
While commuters were struggling to travel on flooded roads and residents trying their best to save their soaking wet homes, this group of young people seemed to cope with the situation the other way around.
Torrential rain started hitting the central city as early as 2:00 am on Sunday, when most residents were still asleep.
Water levels rose quickly and resulted in such serious inundation that was considered unprecedented in many areas.
According to the National Center for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting, the downpours in central Vietnam were the result of an enhanced cold front.
Rainwater completely receded along most areas as of Monday morning and the locals were able to resume their normal lives.
