QUANG TRI (VNS) — A sudden whirlwind occurred on Saturday afternoon, ripping off the roofs on 100 houses in central Quang Tri Province.

They included 30 houses in a commune in the province's Gio Linh District and 70 other in a commune in Vinh Linh District.

The whirlwind toppled many rubber trees and flattened rice crops in Gio Linh. A market, schools and a public cultural centre in Vinh Linh were also heavily damaged.

No fatalities or injuries were reported. The communes are home to rural poor families, whose houses are not very firm from strong wind.

Authorities in the communes have assisted the blow-off households with emergency necessities. — VNS
