In Vietnam, at least 50 people have been killed in floods and landslides after a tropical storm hit the northern and central parts of the country. Tens of thousands of people have been forced to evacuate, as the flooding submerged more than 30,000 homes. It has also killed up to 40,000 animals. One resident of the hard-hit northwest province of Hoa Binh said, “It’s impossible to fight against this water, it’s the strongest in years.”
