Death toll in Vietnam flooding, landslides rises to 68
Vietnam officials say the death toll from landslides and heavy rain triggered by a tropical depression earlier this week has climbed to 68, with another 34 people missing.
The Vietnam Disaster Management Authority said in a statement Sunday that the disasters have also injured 32 people, damaged infrastructure and killed more than 230,000 livestock in central and northern regions.
A disaster official in the hardest-hit province of Hoa Binh in the north, where 20 people have died, said some 300 soldiers, police and militia were still searching for eight people missing from a landslide.
Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Khanun is weakening as it moves toward the Tonkin Gulf and is expected to bring rains to northern and central Vietnam.
