Flooding in central Vietnam kills 17 since last week
HANOI, Vietnam (AP) - Heavy rains have flooded central Vietnam, killing at least 17 people since last week as the region prepares for heavier rains, state media reported on Monday.
According to weather forecasts, water levels will continue to rise, swell rivers and flood more communities in the region, the state newspaper Tuoi Tre reported.
The situation worsened over the weekend when tropical storm Linfa, which turned into a depression as it hit the country, brought more rain to the area, the newspaper said.
Local authorities have evacuated nearly 50,000 people to a higher level, and the floods have inundated over 100,000 households.
The rain is expected to last through Tuesday.
