At least 13 people have been killed in a landslide in the central province of Quang Nam on Wednesday evening. 40 people are missing. State media reported that 12 fishermen had died at sea.

“We can predict the path of the storm or the amount of rain, but we cannot predict when a landslide will occur,” Deputy Prime Minister Trinh Din Dung said in a statement.

“The road is covered in deep mud and heavy rains are still affecting the area but rescue work needs to be done quickly.”

The bodies of 12 fishermen were found Thursday after their boats sank while trying to return to shore two days ago, state television reported Thursday. The 14 men who lined up to find the two navies are still missing.

Vietnam has been battered by storms, heavy rains and floods since early October, affecting more than a million people.

The government said Typhoon Molawe, also known as Quinta, had left millions of people without electricity and damaged 56,000 homes. It was in a state of tropical depression following Wednesday’s landslide. He is expected to arrive in Laos later on Thursday.

Heavy rains of up to 700 mm (27.5 inches) are expected in some parts of central Vietnam until Saturday, the Meteorological Agency said.

Before making landfall in Vietnam, Typhoon Molave ​​passed through the Philippines, where there were floods and landslides. Disaster officials said 16 people were killed Thursday.
