The death toll continued to rise in Vietnam after Typhoon Damrey dealt a severe blow to the country's south-central region, where at least 44 people were killed and 19 remain missing.

At least 116,000 homes were damaged or destroyed by the powerful typhoon's flooding, the Vietnam Disaster Management Authority said in a statement. Of the 19 missing, nine are crew members of cargo ships that sank off the Khanh Hoa province coast.
