Parts of Hanoi experienced severe flooding and power outages after heavy showers moved through on Tuesday night.
Since the showers are moving very slowly, local rainfall amounts of 25 to 50 millimetres in an hour are quite likely.
Streets, vehicles quickly became inundated with water as the downpour began.
Although a weather advisory previously issued by The National Center for Hydro-Meteorological Forecasting has ended, more rain is in the forecast for Hanoi today and tomorrow, September 27.
