Starting on 6 October 2020, the central region of Vietnam has experienced prolonged heavy rainfall as a result of several distinct and severe tropical storms. Most notably, Tropical Storm LINFA struck on 11 October followed by Tropical Storm NANGKA on 14 October, Tropical Storm SAUDEL on 25 October and Cyclone MOLAVE on 28 October. As a result of these consecutive storms, widespread flooding and

landslides have been reported in eight provinces; Nghe An, Ha Tinh, Quang Binh, Quang Tri, Thua Thien Hue, Da Nang, Quang Nam and Quang Ngai. The Hieu river (Quang Tri), Bo river (Hue), Gianh river and Kien Giang river (Quang Binh) have reached historically high levels. In some locations, flood waters have exceeded the previous historical highs recorded in 1979 and 1999. Vietnam Disaster Management Authority has reported that many areas in Central Vietnam recorded accumulated rainfall of more than 1,600mm between 5 and 20 October 2020, with peaks of 2400mm in some locations over the same period.

Within these provinces, 1,300,000 people have been directly affected. Of these, 150,000 have preexisting vulnerabilities, including 36,500 children and 1,900 older people. In Quang Tri Province, 53,759 households have been destroyed and are now living in temporary shelters and/or evacuation centers. The ethnic minorities in Huong Hoa, Da Krong districts of Quang Tri province have been identified as being particularly vulnerable in this disaster.
