Landmark 81 building and apartment complex in ward 22, Binh Thanh district are hidden in the fog.
Weather expert Le Thi Xuan Lan said that thick fog set in plains like Ho Chi Minh City this morning is very rare, appearing only a few times a year. The reason is due to heavy rain lasting for many days, especially yesterday it rained from noon to night, making the air humidity up to 100% and the level of air pollution high.

“Smoke and dust from motorbikes, cars, exhaust gases cause water vapor particles to cling to form fog, plus light winds cause the fog to hover at a low level,” said Ms. Lan. In addition, the temperature this morning dropped to low, some places below 24 degrees Celsius, causing strong condensation.
