According to the ministry, prolonged rain has since October 6 left more than 100 dead, over 90,000 residents evacuated and approximately 130,000 houses submerged in central Vietnam. The natural disaster has caused huge material losses to central provinces, according to VNA.
The RoK government expressed hope the humanitarian aid will help evacuees receive emergency aid and stabilize their lives.
Meanwhile, the United States recently announced it will provide aid worth US$100,000 to help Vietnam address the immediate humanitarian needs of vulnerable communities affected by the Linfa storm.
