According to the brief report from the Standing Office of the Central Steering Committee for Natural Disaster Prevention and Control, typhoon Molave-related deaths were at least two people in the provinces of Gia Lai and Quang Nam, 55 others were missing due to landslide in Nam Tra My and Phuoc Son districts, Quang Nam Province. In addition, 28 people were injured as the storm battered provinces of Thua Thien- Hue, Da Nang and Quang Nam.

More than 2,555 houses and 88,591 rooftops were damaged by the deadly storm.

Additionally, typhoon Molave triggered big waves and gale-force winds to swallow nine fishing boats in the territorial waters of Binh Dinh, Phu Yen and Quang Nam provinces.

Molave has now been downgraded to a tropical depression, but heavy persistent downpours are still falling on several localities leading to a risk of flooding.
