More rain fell in early December, temporarily stranding Vietnamese Mennonites from Ho Chi Minh City who had traveled to central Vietnam to distribute $4,500 Cdn./$3,000 U.S. worth of MCC and Eastern Mennonite Mission relief items. The group was in Quang Ngai distributing rice and blankets to victims of last month's floods, when heavy rain fell again. Quang Nagi streets were covered with chest-deep water. The Mennonite group finally made it safely home after a 24-hour road trip.
Over five days in early December, more than 6 feet of rain fell on some areas of central Vietnam, washing out rice crops replanted after the earlier floods.
