TUYEN QUANG — Flood caused by torrential rain in northern mountainous Tuyen Quang Province swept away a woman of Son Duong District when she was crossing a spring early yesterday morning.
The provincial authority was still searching for the victim last night. The flood also damaged local roads and hundreds of hectares of crop. Earlier, rain and flood caused a landslide that killed three people, collapsed six houses and 11 classrooms and up-rooted over 270 houses.
Massive rains over northern provinces during weekends also caused floods that blocked traffic in National Highway No.71 in northern Phu Tho Province. — VNS
