According to the villagers, they have never seen such a damaging flood in the past decades. Ha Van Van was working in Thanh Hoa City when he was informed that the flood had swept away six members of his family.

"The flood rose really fast. My son was swept away 4km. Luckily, someone noticed and saved him. But my parents-in-law are still missing. I've lost everything including three motorbikes," said Vi Thi Hoa, a villager in Sa Na Village.

Many people were only able to take their children and ran into the forest.
