Disaster Situation

Five people including three children in Ha Giang Province in the northern highlands died Tuesday amid heavy flooding in the region due to prolonged rain. Ha Giang has experienced flooding the past three days due to heavy rains, causing traffic jams and landslides in several areas. Most streets were flooded about a meter deep, while cars could not traverse a section of National Highway 2 due to a collapsed city gate. Two cars were also swept away into the Lo River. "The city has never been as severely flooded as now. We’re busy calculating the damage," said Nguyen Manh Thang, chief of Ha Giang Town People's Committee.
