    ‘Never seen a flood rising as fast in 30 years’

    As water started to recede at the Dien Bien Phu – Nguyen Tri Phuong tunnel, people began to walk back home.

    Walking is challenging as on some sections of the road water was still as one meter high.
    On Phan Dang Luu Road, a man and his son had to get off a taxi and walked for two kilometers before stopping at Le Duan Road to wait for water to withdraw further.
    “I have been living in Da Nang for 30 years but never have I seen a flood rising as fast and wide as this one.”

    Rain stopped, water stopped rising

    At the intersection of Hoang Hoa Tham and Le Duan Street, Thanh Khe District, about 30 cars were left in the middle of the road. The water is about a meter high and has a strong flow.

    The rescue force mobilized two specialized vehicles and dozens of soldiers to support people, mainly helping them to cross the road to avoid the water. Only the fire trucks were moving, since most of the vehicles had dead engines.

    The rain has stopped and the water has stopped rising, but it’s still flowing really strong.

    Residents call for help on flooded roads

    Chau Van An and nearly 10 residents call out for help while standing on top of a flooded car. They have been there since 7 p.m., caught on the way back from work.

    “All the smartphones we have are out of battery, except for mine which have a few percent left. I have been trying to reach rescue operators but cannot. No one has eaten anything.”

    Many residents of Hoang Van Thai and Trung Nu Vuong streets have sent SOS messages on social media, especially about children and the elderly who could not be evacuated in time.
