Floods kill 111 in central Vietnam, Storm Saudel on the way

HANOI (AFP) – More than 100 people have died and 20 others are missing in central Vietnam following weeks of severe flooding and landslides, authorities said yesterday, as the country braced for yet another storm this weekend.

About 178,000 homes have been submerged by floodwaters, according to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, with rescuers mounting a desperate bid to get food and drinking water to those cut off.
