Doksuri, the 10th storm arising in the East Sea so far this year, swept through central Vietnam on September 15, killing nine and causing hundreds of injuries. The Lao government leader said he believes that under the leadership of the Vietnamese Party and Government, residents’ lives in the storm-hit areas would soon be stabilised.

The typhoon, said to be the strongest in a decade, brought heavy rains to central provinces from Thanh Hoa to Quang Ngai with rainfall of 100-200mm and even 300mm in some areas, along with gusts of up to 80-100km per hour.

The typhoon cut off power in many localities and affected 1.3 million people. Thousands of houses were destroyed and power and telecommunications networks were damaged.

Thirty three Vietnam Airlines and Vietjet Air flights from Ha Noi to Ho Chi Minh City, Vinh, Dong Hoi and Thanh Hoa were cancelled. Vietnam Railways also cancelled seven passenger trains and five cargo trains at stations in Ha Tinh and Quang Binh provinces.
