A new cold wave has been hitting Hanoi for the past ten days due to a very strong cold front, which has caused the temperatures in the capital city drop to 12-15 degrees Celsius.

Nguyen Van Huong, head of the Weather Forecasting Department under the National Center for Meteorological and Hydrological Forecasting, said this was the first major cold wave in the north in the winter 2020-21.
