越南洪灾滑坡造成37人丧生 Floods, Landslides Leave 37 People Dead in Vietnam

至少37人在越南北部和中部的洪水和滑坡中丧生,还有40人下落不明。

越南灾害管理当局说,还有至少21人受伤。伤情都发生在北部受灾最严重的和平省。和平省有11人丧生。

引发灾害的是本星期早些时候形成的一个热带低压槽,给越南带来多达40公分的降雨,淹没了至少1万600多栋房屋,成千上万公顷的农作物被毁。

越南经常发生洪水和暴雨,每年都会有数十人丧生。

At least 37 people are dead and another 40 missing after floods and landslides devastated parts of northern and central Vietnam.

Vietnam's Disaster Management Authority says at least 21 people have been injured in the disaster, all of them in the hardest-hit northern province of Hoa Binh, where 11 people were killed.

The disaster was triggered by a tropical depression that reached Vietnam earlier this week, producing as much as 40 centimeters of rain. At least 16,000 homes have been submerged, and thousands of hectares of crop land have been damaged.

Vietnam is prone to floods and storms that kill scores of people each year.
