A cyclone hit Dak Lak province in Vietnam’s central highlands Monday night, injuring 27 people.

The half- hour storm destroyed 15 houses and damaged 73 other houses and three schoolrooms in two communes in Ea Sup district.


Last Saturday a much stronger cyclone, carrying with it sand and rocks, raged through the central Quang Nam province’s Dai Hong commune, devastating at least 500 houses, injuring 20 people, and leaving over 1,000 people homeless.

It brought winds clocking speeds of 150-180km per hour.
