The South Central Regional Hydro Meteorological Center said that the flooding was triggered by heavy rain combined with the release of floodwater from the reservoirs on the previous day.

Several areas in Nha Trang City and Dien Khanh District were badly submerged with many portions under 1.5 meters of water.

According to the Khanh Hoa Province Flood and Storm Prevention Center, all irrigation reservoirs in the area are reducing the release of water. The reservoirs are too full. So if it continues raining heavily, they will be forced to discharge more floodwater.

The same day, the train-track through Suoi Cat Community, was repaired, allowing thousand of passengers that were stranded on the trains, to travel through at only 5 kilometers an hour.
