Another Quang Nam landslide kills three, leave eight missing

Three more people were killed and eight are still missing in a landslide occurring in Phuoc Loc commune, Phuoc Son district, central Quang Nam province, on October 28.

According to Chairman of Phuoc Loc commune People’s Committee Luu Huyen Thoai, the landside hit the locality at about 2:00 pm, burying 11 locals.

The bodies of three victims were found on the same day.

Rescuers are trying to approach the scene of the disaster but they face difficulties due to the impact of Storm Molave, which has triggered landslides and disrupted traffic.

Previously, Phuoc Loc commune also recorded two locals buried in landslides. The bodies of the two victims were found.

The same day, at least 16 people died and 37 others went missing after landslides hit two mountainous communes of Tra Van and Tra Leng in Nam Tra My district.

On October 29, Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Tran Van Tan made a field trip to Phuoc Son district to inspect post-storm recovery and direct the search for landslide victims./
