Vietnam flash floods: a good new video

Posted by Dave Petley

Vietnam flash floods

Youtube has an interesting video of a very dramatic flash flood that appears to have occurred in Phin Pon, Sin Ho District of Lai Chau province in Vietnam on 5th June:


The new highway under construction in the background must be severely threatened by this event.  The man who went down to try to recover the road roller was very lucky indeed to escape the surge towards the end of the video.

Thanks to Thomas Hodgson for finding this one.
