Eight killed as more floods hit Vietnam

At least eight people have died and three are missing in floods in central Vietnam that have forced authorities to evacuate thousands of people, officials said Thursday.

Heavy rains have flooded rural areas and parts of the cities of Hue, Danang and the world heritage-listed port of Hoi An, turning streets into rivers and forcing residents to travel by canoe and makeshift barge.

The latest floods have come as Vietnam is still coping with the aftermath of Typhoon Lekima and massive floods earlier this month, which killed at least 88 people and left nine missing, feared dead.

In Quang Ngai province, three people, including a two-year-old boy, drowned while floods left many villages isolated from the outside world, said an online report of the Hanoi-based national flood and storm control committee.
