The death toll from days of flooding in Vietnam has risen to 83, with authorities announcing they have recovered 17 more bodies, the Associated Press reported.
Showers resumed in northern and central Vietnam on Tuesday and forecasters predict several more days of rain. But they say it will be lighter than the downpours that soaked the capital over the weekend.
Disaster officials said they had recovered 2 more bodies in the capital, Hanoi, 12 more in nearby northern provinces and three more in central Vietnam, which was still suffering flooding after heavy rains last week.
The weekend rains in Hanoi were the worst in 40 years.
Authorities say swollen rivers and lakes continue to threaten dikes across the region, and parts of the capital
are still submerged.
