The meteorologists warned that an upper-air convergence area of up to 5,000 meters would continue to cause torrential rains and floods across the Northern region. From tonight to July 31, many places will witness torrential downpours.
Many places in the Northern mountainous provinces of Lao Cai, Yen Bai, Ha Giang and Cao Bang had recently experienced a maximum rainfall of up to 186 mm.
