Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has issued a dispatch regarding the rescue of victims buried in Tra Leng commune. He asked the National Committee for Natural Disaster Response and Search and Rescue to work hand in hand with local authorities and the Quang Nam Provincial People's Committee to take any measure necessary to promptly rescue the victims.

The Minister of Defense has deployed two naval ships and two fisheries surveillance vessels from Cam Ranh to rescue two boats of Binh Dinh, which sank in the sea on Tuesday.

Typhoon Molave on Wednesday afternoon made a landfall in the central provinces, causing huge damage.

The storm killed one person in Gia Lai province, destroyed or uproofed tens of thousands of houses, damaged the solar power system in Binh Dinh province, and caused severe landslides in many localities. Floodwater of rivers from Thua Thien - Hue to Binh Dinh, Kon Tum and Gia Lai rose above alert level 1, some rivers reaching alert level 2 or 3. Strong winds have brought down many big trees and ripped roofs off hundreds of houses in Quang Ngai and Quang Nam, center of the storm.
