Vietnam: Heavy rain and devastating floods in Vietnam have left 20 people dead and 16 others missing. That's according to the country's rescue committee on Saturday (July 21).
Tropical storm Son Tinh made landfall last week, flooding the capital Hanoi and northern Vietnam's coastal areas. Officials say more than 5,000 houses have been damaged, submerged, collapsed or swept away. They also say that 200,000 acres of crops were damaged and nearly 17,000 animals were killed nationwide. Heavy rains are expected to continue over the next few days.
