Water levels in rivers across Vietnam’s Can Tho City have risen over the past few days due to high tide and are expected to peak at 2.10-2.15 meters between Saturday and Monday next week, according to the municipal weather center.

Tides will likely reach their peak from 5:00 am to 6:00 am and from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm during the given period, the center said.

Therefore, local residents, businesses, and schools should take preventive measures against high tides, which could be accompanied by flooding over a wide scale in low-lying and riverside areas.

Also, high tide flooding could negatively affect embankments and agriculture production activities, the center noted.

Earlier, high tides left many inner-city streets in Can Tho heavily flooded, causing traffic gridlock during the peak hour when people were returning home from work on Friday afternoon, which fell on the Moon Festival or the 15th of the eighth lunar month.

The highest water level measured at the Can Tho station in the Hau River was two meters on Friday morning.
