Many streets in Hanoi were congested because of a torrential rain on Tuesday morning.

As foreseen by the National Center for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting, Hanoi saw moderate rain in the morning in its inner areas, with rainfall of up to 30 millimeters during the three-hour rain.

The rain came down mainly on such districts as Ba Dinh, Cau Giay, Hoan Kiem, Hai Ba Trung, Tay Ho, and Dong Da.

As noted by Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper reporters, due to the influence of the heavy rain, the traffic on various streets became jammed, especially during rush hours in the morning.

Serious congestion was recorded on many inner streets such as Nguyen Trai, Lang, Truong Chinh, Tay Son, Thai Ha, and Huynh Thuc Khang.

On the section from Nga Tu So Ward to Belt 3 of Nguyen Trai Street, the severe traffic jam stretched for up to a kilometer.

As a result, it took people 30 to 40 minutes to get through the Nga Tu So - Belt 3 section that is only about three kilometers long.

At 9:15 am, the traffic on the section of Nguyen Trai Street running to Ha Dong District remained at a standstill.

This is the second day Hanoi has experienced such rains, as previously forecast by the national weather service.
