Red River levels drop to 100-year low

Fishermen drag their boat through shallow waters in the Red River

The average water level of Hanoi’s Red River has sunk to 1.4 meters, the lowest level in the past 100 years, Vietnamese weather forecasters said Friday, predicting drought conditions for the country’s north.

In some points the water level felt to just 1.1 meter, stranding large ships and threatening agricultural production, the National Center for Hydrometeorological Forecasting said.

The center warned the river’s water level could fall further, to just one meter, in late February or early March this year.
