Residents in many Hanoi’s outlying districts are struggling with long power cuts amid the scorching hot weather.

Hanoi is experiencing temperatures of up to 37-38 degrees centigrade and the city has had to cut power in many areas.

On Thursday, lots of areas in Son Tay Town and the districts of Thach That, Chuong My and Quoc Oai suffered from a power cut from 10 am until midnight.

Nguyen Van Hai from Thach That District’s Thach Hoa Commune said that her family had to come to a tourist site in Ba Vi District to escape the heat.

Chu Mui’s family in Phung Xa Commune went to a water park in Quoc Oai to avoid the heat, but it was too crowded. So they decided to go to a shopping mall in Hanoi.

People flocked to some roads in Thach That, Quoc Oai and Chuong My to enjoy the breeze. 


People in Thach That had to wait for electricity until midnight Thursday. Children went outside to escape the heat indoors 

A person slept on a hammock placed on a road.
