Three people have been killed and 13 injured as a thunderstorm passed over several mountainous provinces in northern Vietnam.
One person was killed on Friday in Ha Giang province by a fallen tree. Another was killed as his house collapsed under a rockslide, the Central Steering Committee for Natural Disaster Prevention and Control said.
Torrential downpours and hailstones – the latter a rare occurrence in Vietnam – have damaged nearly 6000 houses, the committee said.
