Flood kills 3, damages over 9,500 houses in central Vietnam


14:50, November 28, 2011

HANOI, Nov. 28 (Xinhua) -- Floods in Vietnam's central and Central Highlands regions over the past five days killed at least three people, damaged over 9,500 houses and inundated more than 210 hectares of rice fields and nearly 580 hectares of other crops, local Flood and Storm Control Centre reported Monday.

Flash floods seriously eroded many inter-province roads, causing heavy traffic jams in many parts of central Quang Ngai and Binh Dinh provinces.

Pumps at water reservoirs worked at full capacity to regulate the water levels, while local authorities urgently dealt with the consequences, said the report.
