Da Nang City in central Vietnam was suddenly greeted by rain on Friday evening, much to the delight of its residents amid a prolonged spell of scorching weather.

The first rain appeared in the Nam O area near Hai Van Pass at around 3:30 pm, as reported by a local resident.

“The rain brings a refreshing coolness to the air,” commented the local.

Shortly thereafter, it ceased, only to resume later in the evening.

Around 6:00 pm, a sudden downpour enveloped every corner of Da Nang City, first in Hoa Vang District, Lien Chieu District, and Ngu Hanh Son District, followed by Hai Chau District, Thanh Khe District, and Son Tra District.

This unexpected rainfall coincided with the end of the workday, catching many people off guard and leaving them soaked on their way home.

However, after enduring several scorching days, with the highest temperature soaring to 39 degrees Celsius during daytime on Friday, the people of Da Nang welcomed the rain with joy.

Lasting for over an hour, the gentle rain contributed to a more comfortable atmosphere.

On social media platforms, people eagerly shared photos of the rain in their respective areas, inquiring whether it was raining elsewhere among their friends.

The widespread discussion was fueled by the rarity of rain in recent times, particularly timely as it arrived just before the five-day holiday from Saturday to next Wednesday to commemorate Reunification Day (April 30) and International Workers’ Day (May 1).

Previously, the National Center for Hydrometeorological Forecasting had forecasted that the hot and sweltering weather across the country would persist until around April 30, with a gradual decrease in intensity expected from May 1 to May 2.
