Flooding and landslides kill three in Vietnam's north

HANOI: Flooding and landslides in northern Vietnam have killed three people, state media said on Monday (Jun 10), after days of heavy rain that partially submerged thousands of homes.

Images on state media showed water gushing down the steep roads of mountainous Ha Giang province, a popular spot for motorcycle tours, with vehicles overturned and abandoned in the floodwater.

Residents in Ha Giang city stood on rooftops waiting for rescue.

It has been raining heavily and continuously in the province since Saturday. Thousands of homes have been partially submerged and many roads damaged, state media said.

High water on the Lo river had triggered “floods and landslides,” according to a statement on the website of the provincial authorities.

Access to three communes bordering China had been cut off due to landslides, the statement said.
