The torrential rains currently battering northern and north-central Vietnamese provinces are forecast to linger until the beginning of next week.

Downpours were recorded in localities in the north-central region and the southern part of the Red River Delta on Thursday, according to the National Center for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting.

From 7:00 am to 1:00 pm, average daily rainfall was measured at 70-160 millimeters in several localities.

Rains of 50100 millimeters accompanied by thunderstorms are expected to continue dampening northern and north-central Vietnam until Monday next week.

Rain and thunderstorms in the south-central, southern, and Central Highlands regions are also forecast to linger for a few more days.

The water level of rivers in north-central Nghe An and Ha Tinh Provinces was quite high on Thursday and is forecast to continue rising over the next few days, according to Phung Tien Dung, an official from the National Center for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting.

There will be a high risk of flash floods, landslides, and inundation in multiple areas in Thanh Hoa, Nghe An, and Ha Tinh Provinces in north-central Vietnam.

The National Steering Committee for Natural Disaster Prevention and Control has sent a document to authorities in north-central provinces regarding preparations for and responses to such disasters.

Authorities in Nghe An confirmed on Thursday that heavy rains and floods in the province over the past few days had killed two people and left one missing.

More than 7,000 houses were submerged, while 71 families were forced to evacuate due to landslides.

Ha Tinh authorities said on the same day that nearly 50 schools had temporarily shut down due to downpours and serious flooding.
