Tropical storm Haima that swept the northern and central region and died away on Saturday had caused 17 dead, 4 missing and hundreds injured as of yesterday night, the Central Steering Board for Flood and Storm Prevention and Control reported.

Of the 17 that had been killed, 7 were in Hai Phong City, 2 in Ha Giang and 8 in Thanh Hoa, Nam Dinh and Thai Binh provinces.

Of the 4 people missing, 3 come from Yen Bai and 1 from Nghe An.

Of the hundreds injured, 63 are now in serious conditions.

Since the storm died away, heavy rains have continued to affect northern and northern central provinces. 

Downpours have swollen rivers, causing heavy floods in many provinces.
The most damage from floods has so far been observed in western Nghe An province, where violent floods submerged 700 houses, pulled down 110 others and 20 classrooms, and swept away several bridges.

The province has suffered a total damage of hundreds of billions of dongs [VND100 billion equals US$4.9 million], said the provincial Steeering Board for Flood and Storm Prevention and Control.  

Floodwater caused damage to a total of 10,150 hectares of rice, including 3,535 hectares in Nghe An, 2,030 hectares in Thanh Hoa, 1,190 hectares in Ninh Binh and 580 hectares in Thai Binh.

Rough sea due to the storm also submerged at least 9 fishing boats and caused damage to 5 others in some provinces.
