The water level in the Dau Tieng Reservoir and the upstream area of the Mekong River is on the increase. Villagers living along the Sai Gon River’s banks and the Mekong Delta are being warned about the possible flood.
 
The Dau Tieng Reservoir Company in the southern province of Tay Ninh is preparing for flood drainage as the water is reaching a higher level than the previous years.

Villagers living along the Sai Gon River’s banks are being warned about the possible flood.

Currently, the Dau Tieng with 1.5 billion cubic meters of water in the area 27,000 ha is providing fresh water for thousand of families in southern provinces.

Meanwhile, the water level in the upstream area of the Mekong Delta is on the increase, announces the An Giang Hydrometeorology Forecast Station.

The water level at the Tan Chau Gauging Station on the Tien River is reported at 2.45 meters, 81 centimeters higher year-on-year and at 1.84 meter in the Hau River in Chau Doc province.

The Hydrometeorology Forecast Station predicts the water level in the Mekong Delta and the Long Xuyen city of the An Giang province would rise in the next five days.

Farmers in the landslide regions are required to harvest their crops as soon as possible to reduce the future losses. In addition, villagers are being evacuated to higher areas.
