11 dead in Vietnam floods: state media
by Staff Writers
Hanoi, Vietnam (AFP) Oct 15, 2016


At least 11 people have died and several more are missing in heavy flooding in central Vietnam, state media said Saturday, with tens of thousands of homes completely submerged by water.

The communist government has ordered local authorities to mobilise the army and police to rescue trapped residents following heavy downpours, state-run Vietnam Television reported.

The channel said at least 11 had died in the flooding with some 27,000 homes under water in the region.

Local official Nguyen Huu Hoai told AFP that the death toll was seven in Quang Binh province, but added that conditions were improving.

"We can reach areas which were isolated by flooding," the chairman of the provincial People's Committee told AFP.

Though rainfall is expected to ease, officials warned the region could be hammered again if Typhoon Sarika in the South China Sea reaches Vietnam.
