Continuous heavy rain for three days caused many places on the island of Phu Quoc (Kien Giang) to be over a meter under water.

On August 5th, many roads in Dương Đông Town and Cửa Dương, Cửa Cạn, and Dương Tơ communes were still deeply flooded. On Cach Mang Thang Tam, Tran Phu, Mạc Cửu, and Nguyễn Trung Trực streets, locals and tourists used boats to move around.

Many old people in the region said this was the biggest flood recorded in history of Phu Quoc.
