Explaining about the flood on September 30th, Mr. Nguyen Tang Cuong said, then, rainfall in the area of Nguyen Huu Canh Street (Binh Thanh District) reached more than 93mm, the largest rain since the beginning of the year. Heavy rains lasted nearly 2 hours, with the entire basin area around Nguyen Huu Canh is 75,000sm, meaning that every hour nearly 100.000m³ water poured down Nguyen Huu Canh. This is a huge amount of water, but with a pump capacity of 96,000m³, the suction pump is just over an hour of clean water. While other areas such as Huynh Tan Phat Street, not until 3 am in the morning that the water is drawn out.
