HA NOI (VNS) — A 19-year-old fisherman in central Thanh Hoa Province, reported missing after a whirlwind struck his boat, was found dead yesterday, according to the province's Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.

Earlier on Saturday, fisherman Vu Ngoc Anh, along with two other fishermen aboard the boat TH 1248-TS, were fishing in the sea, 30 nautical miles from northern Hai Phong City's Bach Long Vy Island when a whirlwind struck. It reportedly flooded his boat and two other nearby fishing boats.

One fisherman on Anh's boat was also killed, while 13 fishermen in the two other boats survived the storm.

Local authorities are now assisting the victims.
