HANOI, Oct 12:  Floods caused by a tropical depression in Vietnam killed 37 people, one of the highest death tolls recorded in the country from flooding, the disaster prevention agency said on Thursday.
Forty people were missing and 21 others were injured after rains caused landslides and flooding, mostly in northern and central Vietnam.
“Our entire village had sleepless nights…it’s impossible to fight against this water, it’s the strongest in years,” Ngo Thi Su, a resident in northwestern Hoa Binh province, was quoted as saying by state-run Vietnam Television (VTV).
