As many as 106 people have died in Vietnam in the floods and landslides triggered by Typhoon Damrey, the deadliest storm to hit the country in years. At least 25 people are missing and 197 were injured, Reuters reported on Thursday.
Water from at least 12 dangerously full reservoirs are being released, government officials said.
The city of Danang, which is hosting a summit on Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, was also affected. Authorities said they are making “vigorous efforts” to prevent flooding around the central city.
United States President Donald Trump, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping are due to attend the event from Friday. Officials said flooding has not affected the schedule.
Although Danang was not badly affected, the nearby historic city of Hoi An was flooded. It is a Unesco heritage site, known mostly for its unique architecture.
