Landslides due to rains from a tropical storm have killed 13 people and left four others missing in south-central Vietnam.
A disaster official in Khanh Hoa province says some 600 soldiers have been mobilised to search for the missing and evacuate people from high-risk areas.
The storm weakened to a tropical depression at sea off the south-central coastal province of Binh Thuan and Ninh Thuan on Sunday night, the Vietnam Disaster Management Authority said in a statement Monday.
Vietnam is prone to floods and storms which kill hundreds of people each year.
