In Phu Yen Province, more than 1,300 students of three schools in Tuy Hoa Town were allowed to stay home due to floods.

The same situation has caused 29 out of 50 schools in Da Nang’s Hoa Vang District to keep students home.

According to the National Center for Hydro -Meteorological Forecasting, from 7 a.m. Sunday to 7 a.m. Monday, Ha Tinh received 127.4 millimeters of rain, Quang Binh 257.4 mm, Quang Tri 242.8 mm, Thua Thien Hue 509.6 mm, Da Nang 455.6 mm, Quang Nam 362.4 mm, Quang Ngai 136.8 mm, Phu Yen 209 mm, and Khanh Hoa 116.2 mm.

Heavy rains in the region have been caused by a combination of the northeast monsoon winds and a cold spell from the north, it said.

The center warns that from Monday to Tuesday, floods are likely to occur on rivers from Ha Tinh to Quang Ngai, with water levels rising by three to seven meters upstream and one to three meters downstream and more flash floods and landslides should be expected.
