The heavy rain lasted more than an hour on the afternoon of December 10, causing many streets in the city center to flood again.

The management board of Hoang Anh Gia Lai luxury apartment complex hired a water pump to save more than 10 cars that had sunk since yesterday. Due to heavy rain, they had to stop.

Mr. Le Dien Thien (50 years old), owner of a motorbike repair shop on Ham Nghi street, said that since the flood in 1999, he has only seen streets submerged in water up to nearly a meter like that.

`In previous years there were floods but the water receded immediately, unlike this time,` Mr. Thien said.

At 640 Trung Nu Vuong Street (Hai Chau District), Mr. Truong took advantage of the receding water to clean up his room after a day of being immersed in water more than a meter deep, but this afternoon rainwater suddenly flooded in.

Currently, most of Da Nang’s irrigation lakes have overflowed.

Too much rain is the cause of flooding.

A series of stalled cars had to be rescued.

`There is another fact that many people are not aware. When it rains heavily, people wear raincoats to the street, wade in the water, and then leave their raincoats right in the flooded area, further blocking the gates and roads.

Monitoring the re-flooding situation this afternoon, Mr. Thang commented that the water would recede faster, thanks to `the heavy rain yesterday helped push waste out of the sewers, increasing drainage capacity.`

This expert said that this heavy rain causing flooding is an `opportunity` for Da Nang to recalculate how to make infrastructure more methodical.
