QUẢNG TRỊ  A tornado swept through Đông Hà City in Quảng Trị Province on Saturday afternoon, though no injuries were reported.
The tornado, lasting some 10 minutes, blew off roofs from several homes and caused trees to fall onto city streets.
Further, officials reported that the Hùng Vương Primary School had at least 80 per cent of its roof blown off by the tornado.
School principal Lê Minh Giám said there were 25 students from grade four and five at school when the tornado struck. The students, however, were evacuated to a safe location, he said.
"We are working to clean up and fix the roof so that school can open normally on Monday," added Giám.  VNS
