Floods in Hanoi?

While researching Hanoi in preparation for my move I found several articles concerning floods in central Hanoi during the monsoon season including a couple of blogs describing personal experiences of getting caught in one of these floods. Very inconvenient. Could someone tell me which areas or streets in the city are effected and how frequently? Are periodic floods just considered a fact-of-life in Hanoi? I read that the City is taking steps to mitigate the problem. What have you observed? Thank you.
