The high tide is warned to exceed the alarm level 3, causing flood tide in the southern region on the large scale. 

Particularly, water level on Tien River (at Tan Chau Station), Hau River (at Chau Doc Station) is measured at 2.25 meters, and at 1.58- 1.63 meters on Sai Gon River (at Phu An Station) and Dong Dien River (at Nha Be Station) which is warned to submerge the low areas of Ho Chi Minh City, Can Tho city and Bac Lieu at 5-7 AM and at 6-8PM. 

Meanwhile, since last couple of days the northern region has experienced dry weather due low air humidity of over 50 percent. 

The highest temperature reached at 25- 26 degrees Celsius at daytime, and under 14 degrees Celsius at night. 

Because rainfall in the central provinces of Binh Dinh and Phu Yen has reduced rapidly, the flooding on rivers from Quang Ngai to Phu Yen provinces also continues dropping down.
