Hanoi: Typhoon Son Tinh blew the roofs off thousands of homes in northern Vietnam, killing at least seven people and raising its death toll over the past week to at least 32.
Vietnam`s disaster agency reported today that the typhoon killed seven people, left five missing and injured 43 in the north. The typhoon`s center did not make landfall before dissipating at sea yesterday, but it blew roofs off more than 13,000 houses and damaged nearly 19,000 hectares (47,000 acres) of rice crops.
