Flash floods in Vietnam kill 2, leave 8 missing

Heavy rains in northern mountain provinces of Vietnam on Wednesday caused flash flooding and landslides, killing two people and leaving eight missing, authorities said.
The destruction occurred on Tuesday night, with the biggest devastation at the Lien Minh Commune of Lao Cai province, where many local residents’ property and homes washed away, the National Steering Committee for Disaster Prevention and Control said.
Rescue forces said it is difficult to reach the disaster-stricken region due to high
floodwaters and extensive inundated areas.
Local authorities are searching for the missing.
