Viet­nam storm leaves 54 dead, 39 miss­ing

Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - WORLD -

2 HANOI, VIET­NAM >> Floods and land­slides have killed at least 54 peo­ple in Viet­nam and left an­other 39 miss­ing since a trop­i­cal de­pres­sion hit the coun­try ear­lier this week, of­fi­cials said to­day.

The heavy rain in the cen­tral and north­ern re­gions has dis­rupted travel in some ar­eas, lim­it­ing the search for the miss­ing.

The storm that hit cen­tral Viet­nam on Tues­day also in­jured 31 peo­ple and sub­merged more than 30,000 houses, and dam­aged in­fra­struc­ture, crops and live­stock, the Viet­nam Dis­as­ter Man­age­ment Author­ity said in a state­ment Fri­day.
