Four people died due to strong wave and heavy rainfall in central-south of Vietnam. Two of them were fishermen whom their boat capsized near Spratly Islands, despite off-shore fishing ban by the Government of Vietnam on Thursday (2 Nov).

Update on 4 November 2017
Torrential rains and strong winds triggered by storm Damrey have so far left six dead, six injured, and five missing in central and south-central provinces, said local officials.
According to initial information, the typhoon has claimed four lives and injured five in Khanh Hoa province. Around 80-90% of houses in northern Khanh Hoa, including the towns of Ninh Hoa and Van Ninh, lost their roofs or were otherwise damaged.

Local residents had to evacuate to safe areas. Electricity poles and base transceiver stations (BTS) collapsed, resulting in large-scale power outages and intermittent communications. Hundreds of fishing boats were broken down or capsized. Localities are mobilizing the cleanup effort to clear roads for travelers.

Vo Luc Pham, vice chairman of Van Ninh district People’s Committee in Khanh Hoa province, said the district has focused on giving first aid to five injured people and evacuating households near coastal areas to safer places.
Deputy Prime Minister Trinh Dinh Dung made a fact-finding visit to Vinh Hoa village in Nha Trang City to inspect damages caused by the storm No 12.

According to a VOV reporter in the central region, storm Damrey has left five people dead and five injured in Khanh Hoa, and two missing in Phu Yen province.

Vo Ngoc Kha, chairman of Tuy Hoa City People’s Committee in Phu Yen province, said the city suffered significant losses from typhoon Damrey. Fallen trees and electricity poles caused traffic congestion on many roads.
Six people have been reported dead and missing after typhoon Damrey slammed into Binh Dinh province on the evening of November 3.

Torrential rains submerged many low lying areas, leaving mountainous areas isolated. Some fishing vessels anchored at Quy Nhon port capsized.
