( - Typhoon Rammasun, that struck Vietnam on July 19, has claimed 27 lives in northern mountainous provinces, the National Steering Committee for Flood and Storm Prevention and Control reports.


Ha Giang is the hardest hit in terms of human loss, with 7 deaths, closely followed by Lai Chau 6, Lang Son 5, Lao Cai 3, Son La 3, Cao Bang 1, Dien Bien 1, and Bac Kan 1.

Lang Son also has 5,800 out of a total of 5,902 inundated houses in the entire northern mountainous region, according to initial reports.


Heavy rains also caused landslides in Lang Son, Lai Chau, Bac Kan, Ha Giang, and Son La, blocking traffic between these provinces.


The power sector is working hard to restore electricity in Quang Ninh, Bac Kan, Ha Giang, Dien Bien and Lang Son.


Weather experts warned mountainous localities of flash floods and landslides due to heavy rains.
