Dong Nai River water to reach top alert level

The water in Dong Nai River, the second largest river in the southern region that crosses some Central Highlands and southern localities, is forecast to reach 1.96m, nearly equivalent to Level 3 alert.

According to the Southern Regional Hydrometeorological Centre, in the next two days, the Dong Nai-Sai Gon River will continue to rise.

On October 30, the water level at Bien Hoa censoring station is predicted to remain at 1.9m and get lower slowly later.

Meanwhile, the Tri An Hydropower Company said that it will continue pumping 450cu.m water per second to the lower reaches of the river.

Due to the rising tide, a number of low areas near the Dong Nai River including Long Thanh, NhonTrach district and Bien Hoa city face high risk of flooding. Local residents are advised to take responding measures to reduce losses from flooding.
