The Delta province of CA MAU was ravaged by a fierce cyclone early this week with the heavy rains increasing the hardship on residents, one of whom was killed.
Some 500 buildings were totalled (destroyed) making a tourism visit there an unwelcome burden on resources.
The death occurred in the township of SONG DOC and injured 12 others. Thousands of others were left homeless in this low-lying area and officials are trying to ascertain the extent of the damage.
Before setting out to journey to the southern reaches of the Delta you better check with authorities.

We are planning our vacation in Vietnam in early May...
Is that dangerous to go there now? Airtickets are ready...

Ca Mau is in a quite southerly location AND IT CAN BE BYPASSED if you are heading further south.
Now you know, you can prepare for any re-routing.
Take a look at: < http://www.wompom.ca/vietnam/vnprovinc801.htm > and use the page links on the L/H margin to locate other provinces.
The MOST IMPORTANT thing is NOT to overload their facilities.
