HANOI: Floods have killed three people and left 13 missing after Tropical Storm Usagi triggered heavy rain in central Vietnam, authorities said Friday.
The three dead were swept away by floodwater, the Central Steering Committee for Storm and Flood Control said in a report released Friday.
Five people including two children were among the missing after the car they were travelling in was swept off the road in Nghe An province on Thursday.
Floods and landslides destroyed nearly 5,000 houses and nearly 6,000 hectares of rice and vegetable were inundated. (QNA)
