The Red Cross Society of China has donated 30,000 USD to Vietnamese flood victims in the central region to partly help them stabilise their lives.

Tropical storm Wutip, the 10th to hit Vietnam so far this year, has caused losses totalling 11 trillion VND (517 million USD) for central coastal provinces.

Quang Binh was the hardest hit with losses topping 8 trillion VND, followed by Nghe An with 1.3 trillion VND, Ha Tinh with 1.17 trillion VND, Thua Thien-Hue with over 300 billion VND, and Thanh Hoa with 140 billion VND.

By October 5, the storm had killed 14 people and injured 225 others, while two people were still missing.

Authorities are striving to help the locals overcome the consequences of the storm while people and organisations nationwide are making financial contributions to assist them.-VNA
