Bien Hoa City, Dong Nai province, Vietnam, September 20, 2015
The situation was exacerbated by the loss of lakes and ponds that have been filled as rapid urbanisation gets underway – and by illegal housing narrowing down local streams.
Three days of non-stop, heavy rain started on Tuesday evening, severely flooding Bien Hoa City in the heart of the province.
More than 20 streets in the city were flooded to a depth of up to 80 centimetres, including Dong Khoi, Nguyen Ai Quoc and Nguyen Phuc Chu streets.
