The situation has been present for the past week along the alley at 183 Cay Tram Street in Go Vap District.

The 300-meter-long alley is always submerged under water as high as 30 centimeters, even during sunny days.

Houses of local citizens are flooded around the clock, while motorbikes often break down traveling in the area.

Le Thi Tuyet Lan, 53, told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper while scooping floodwater out of her house that she had to move her furniture to higher spots in the house.

Local people stated that this alley has always been flooded whenever it rains in the past three years, causing many challenges to their daily lives, adding that the weak sewage systems are to blame.
