The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

HANOI: Se­vere flood­ing in Viet­nam has killed at least 25 and de­stroyed thou­sands of homes, of­fi­cials said yes­ter­day, as the coun­try braced for fur­ther de­struc­tion with Typhoon Sarika bar­relling closer. Im­ages from flood-hit prov­inces showed houses al­most com­pletely sub­merged and peo­ple pad­dling down wa­ter­logged streets fol­low­ing heavy rain that started last week. Four peo­ple are still miss­ing af­ter the del­uge, which de­stroyed or dam­aged over 240,000 homes in sev­eral prov­inces since Friday, the Nat­u­ral Dis­as­ter Pre­ven­tion of­fice said. – AFP
