Seven die from flooding in central Viet Nam

Floods caused by heavy rains killed seven people in the central Viet Nam provinces of Khanh Hoa, Binh Dinh, and Quang Ngai, officials said today, Earthtimes.org reported.

The Central Flood and Storm department reported that all of the victims were washed away and drowned in swollen springs and rivers.

ā€œIā€™m afraid more people may be killed if they keep carelessly crossing springs and rivers that are empowered by rain water,ā€ Dam Vinh Loi, deputy head of the flood and storm department of Binh Dinh Province, said.

Floods and storms have killed at least 188 people in Viet Nam so far this year.
