Devasting floods continue in Vietnam

Central Vietnam has continued to be plagued by devastating floods, with the death toll rising to 62.

The flood and storms control committee revealed on its website that 14 bodies have been recovered over a couple of days, while the 20 people are still missing. Up to 100,000 people are estimated to be facing food shortages in the wake of the floods.

The committee also estimated that £68.9M in infrastructure and agricultural crops have been damaged.

Quang Binh has been the worst-hit province, according disaster official Nguyen Ngoc Giai, with 42 people dead, 17 missing and authorities frantically trying to distribute aid to victims in the area.

But no rain has been forecast for the region on 11 October.
