Tropical storm Nock-Ten hit Vietnam over the weekend, after wrecking havoc in the Philippines. Although the main impact is in the north and central, south Vietnam also suffered 2 days of strong winds and rain.
The newspaper reports little damage, just that many trees were uprooted in HCMC, compared to the 2 lives that were lost to the storm in the north.
The storm however did not deter some people from their usual routine, I took a picture of this woman going back from the market, riding in the heavy rain.
