Hot wave burns central region

The central and south central provinces from Binh Dinh to Binh Thuan have suffered hot weather with its peak temperature of 37 degrees Celsius at daytime, reported the National Hydrology Meteorology Forecast Center yesterday.


At present, the hot weather has caused flow shortage at 50- 95 percent in local rivers. Water release capacity in reservoirs reached at 49, 4- 51, 3 percent in comparison with design capacity.

Because of the influence of low pressure trough, small- medium rains and thunderstorms have appeared in the north provinces on the large scale.

Besides, the southwest monsoon caused small- heavy rains and thunderstorms in Ho Chi Minh City and the southern region, with the highest temperature at 25- 26 degrees Celsius at night, and at 32- 33 degrees Celsius at daytime.
