Heavy floods are likely to hit central provinces until the end of this year, Dang Ngoc Tinh, chief of the Northern Hydrometeorology Forecast Office said Wednesday.
Tinh said as the region was in the rainy season, while La Nina phenomenon has been predicted to affect Vietnam by the end of this year, the central provinces will receive a lot of heavy rains.
According to the National Center for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting, two to three storms on the East Sea will affect Vietnam’s central region.
Rain-triggered floods since early this month in the region have killed a total 120 people, claiming losses worth thousands of billions of dong.
