HANOI, (Xinhua): As of late Wednesday, Typhoon Nari killed at least nine, left six others missing, and injured 76 people in Vietnam’s central coastal provinces, reported the Central Committee for Flood and Storm Prevention on Thursday.

Property loss is estimated to reach 1.5 trillion VND (71 million U.S. dollars).

Specifically, the storm broke out more than 500 homes and damaged about 12,000 others in Thua Thien-Hue, Da Nang, Quang Nam and Quang Ngai provinces.

More than 350 ha of paddy fields, 3,284 ha of crops were flooded, while 77 fishing vessels sunk or broken, and 95 power poles blew down.

Rainfalls of between 200-400mm were recorded from central Quang Binh to Quang Ngai provinces, and in the Central Highlands region. As a result, water levels in local rivers were increased, causing floods in low areas.

Many reservoirs are now at risk of overflowing, of which 13 units run by hydro-power plants have been discharging the overflow, said the report.

Typhoon Nari made a landfall to Vietnam’s central coastal provinces late on Monday night, with Da Nang city being the storm eye, and it devastated the region until Wednesday morning. It was the 11th storm hitting the country so far this year.
