VTV.vn - Recent floods have raised water levels to alarming heights in Thuong Phuoc 1 Commune, Hong Ngu District, Dong Thap Province.

To deal with this issue, provincial authorities have drafted plans to open floodgates to stabilize water levels and ensure the safety of residents in areas that may be flooded due to the discharged water. The dike in the area was constructed about a year ago, which means the ground around the dike is still weak. Local authorities have opened the floodgates in specific locations in the past to avoid raising the river's water levels.
