A stretch of the Sài Gòn River Dyke in HCM City’s Thủ Đức District was broken yesterday morning by high tides.

The tides reached their peak at 1,63 metres and broke 5 metres of the dyke in Hiệp Bình Phước Ward,

The waters flooded several houses and drowned some 50,000 yellow ochna trees, which were grown by 10 households to sell during the celebration of the Lunar New Year in two months’ time.

The trees will die if the water is not completely drained in the next few days.

Water overflowed from fish ponds and took several fish out of the ponds, leading to a major financial loss for farmers.VNA/VNS Photo Manh Linh
