Floods kill 32 in central Vietnam and submerges 48,000 houses

There hasn’t been a lot of good news coming out from Vietnam about this: 

Floods have killed at least 32 people in central Vietnam, displacing thousands and cutting the north-south railway, officials said on Wednesday.

The floods triggered by a storm that weakened into a depression since the weekend have isolated many areas from emergency aid, said an official in Quang Binh province. Quang Binh is the hardest-hit of the central coastal provinces with about 40,000 houses submerged. The government said overall more than 48,000 homes and 65,700 hectares (162,300 acres) of crops were under water.

Let’s just hope those who have survived but displaced are in contact with their families and the other people that have been reported missing are alive. Read more at Reuters everyone affected by this in your thoughts.
