QUẢNG NGÃI — Rescue forces have been seeking four fishermen missing from a fishing boat that sank off the coast of Quảng Ngãi Province during the incessant rainfall of the past week.

The Centre of Flood and Storm Prevention in the Central and Central Highlands regions said the fishing boat, QNg 11150TS, was towed safety to Sa Kỳ Port in the province on Friday, but four fishermen have yet to be found.

Meanwhile, a low pressure, which emerged in the East Sea early yesterday morning, is expected to dump heavy rain and bring strong winds in the eastern and southern areas of the East Sea.

Flood water has been receding in some areas of Quảng Ngãi and Bình Định Provinces.

According to the latest report from the centre, 12 people have been killed and five injured in the flooding in Bình Định, Quảng Ngãi and Khánh Hòa provinces between December 5 and 10. — VNS
