Death toll jumps to 43 in Vietnam’s worst seasonal floods in a decade - 13th Oct 2011

AP: Vietnam says nine more deaths have brought the toll from the Mekong Delta’s worst flooding in more than a decade to 43 people, mostly children.

The government said Thursday that the seasonal floods have submerged nearly 70,000 homes. The waters have damaged an estimated $55 million in crops and infrastructure in the south since late August.

The high water levels also prevented more than 234,000 students from attending schools. Source
