Torrential rains, likely accompanied by flash floods and land subsidence, will lash northern Vietnam this week, while many rivers are rising in the southern region, the National Center for Hydro-Meteorological Forecasting has warned. As a result of a low pressure system pressed by a continental high pressure area, northern provinces will experience rainstorms, likely with hail and strong squalls, as of this evening, the center said. This weather pattern will expand to the north-central region on Friday and will last for several days. Downpours may cause flash floods and land subsidence in northern mountainous provinces, especially in Quang Ninh, Cao Bang, Lang Son, Bac Kan, Bac Giang, Thai Nguyen, Ha Giang, Tuyen Quang, Lai Chau, Son La and Dien Bien. Meanwhile, heavy rains have occurred over the past three days in the middle and upstream areas of the Mekong River in Laos and Thailand, with rainfall totals of up to 598mm in Laos and 354mm in Thailand, the center reported. Such torrential rains have caused the water level downstream in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta area to rise, with that in many locations to ascend by 8-15cm per day in days to come. On August 2, the highest level of the Tien River may reach 2.4 meters in Tan Chau (in An Giang Province), while that of the Hau River will likely hit 2.15 meters in Chau Doc (also in An Giang), the center said.
