At least six people have died and another 112 were injured after Storm Noul passed through several provinces in central Vietnam on Monday. According to local media, they reached winds of more than 90 kilometers per hour.
The storm landed near Hue, the hardest hit city, last Friday, where at least four deaths have been recorded. High winds toppled more than 10,000 trees, damaged power lines and left more than 280,000 families without electricity.
According to the Central Steering Committee for Natural Disaster Prevention and Control, the victims include two men trapped under two trees and two other people who fell from the roof they were trying to repair after storm damage.
Meanwhile, the heavy rains in the popular tourist destination Da Nang resulted in heavy flooding. The storm’s arrival in this region comes shortly after the city had to deal with the worst part of the second wave of coronavirus that recently hit the country.
