A three-hour downpour on October 5 left most of Can Tho’s streets flooded and gridlocked and many parts of the downtown area under more than half a meter of water.
The worst affected were Hoa Binh Boulevard, Tran Hung Dao, Nguyen Trai, Ly Tu Trong, Tran Ngoc Que, and Tran Van Hoai.
The drainage network was unable to cope. Even streets with new drainage systems, like Mau Than and Dinh Tien Hoang, were inundated, with the water flowing into houses.
The flooding was the worst in decades.
