VGP – The U.S. Mission in Viet Nam pledges to assist Viet Nam’s rebuilding efforts after the flooding hit the country’s central region in its statement on October 14. 

In the statement, the U.S. Mission in Viet Nam expresses their deepest condolences to the people of Viet Nam for the loss of life, destruction of property, and displacement of people due to the flooding in central Viet Nam.  

“We stand together with the Government and the people of Viet Nam as they mourn their loved ones, address the damage caused by this terrible flood, and move forward, as the people of Viet Nam have always done,” the statement said. 

With USAID’s leadership, the U.S. Mission in Viet Nam continues to support Viet Nam’s disaster relief efforts and plans are underway to provide additional assistance, it asserted. 

Since the middle of last week the entire central coast and some Central Highlands provinces have been hit by torrential rains.

The ongoing heavy rains in the Central region have claimed 18 lives and left 14 others missing as of late October 11, according to the Central Steering Committee for Disaster Prevention and Control.

As of 6:00 am of October 11, central localities evacuated 45,835 people of 15,392 households.

The heavy rainfalls destroyed 382 houses; submerged 109,034 houses; 70 schools; 108 portions of national roads; damaged 584 hectares of paddy rice and 3,879 hectares of vegetables; 2,141 hectares of aquaculture cultivation; and killed 271 castles; and 150,489 poultries.
