Death toll from typhoon Damrey in Vietnam reaches 106

Death toll from typhoon Damrey in Vietnam reaches 106”

"With a grant of 250,000 Dollars in disaster relief funds, USAID will provide sanitation, health-related, and commodity relief items to the areas of Vietnam most affected by Typhoon Damrey", said Ambassador Kritenbrink.

The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit is being held in the Vietnamese city of Da Nang on November 10-11. It will bring together US President Donald Trump, China's Xi Jinping and Russia's Vladimir Putin, among other leaders.

While Danang itself was spared the worst damage, muddy floodwaters submerged the hardest-hit provinces and swamped nearby Hoi An, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that was due to host APEC spouses later this week.

Floods, landslides and boat accidents have killed 91 people so far, the government said Thursday.

More than 120,000 houses and 250,000 hectares of farmland were damaged in the storm, according to the country's disaster management authority.

Authorities warned that raging rivers were filling reservoirs to near-capacity in central and southern provinces, with rain still pelting down in some areas.

Typhoon "Damrey" with maximum sustained winds of 139 kph (wind gust up to 167 kph) made landfall on Saturday morning, 4 November 2017, in between south of Phu Yen Province and north of Khanh Hoa Province, Viet Nam.

An additional disaster preparedness grant of 800,000 Dollars awarded last month to the Vietnam National Red Cross will benefit approximately 13,700 people directly and 30,000 people indirectly in three target provinces using a community-based approach to build capacity to prepare for and respond to disasters, he added.

Typhoon Damrey, Vietnam's deadliest storm this year, has killed at least 106 people, injuring 197 others, and leaving 25 missing.
