At least 4 people killed by landslide in Vietnamese Nha Trang resort town

At least four people died and ten others were injured after a landslide occurred in Vietnam's resort town of Nha Trang on Tuesday, Sputnik reported.

An elderly woman, a 43-year-old woman, a four-year-old boy and a 17-month-old child are among the victims, the VnExpress International news website reported.

Due to heavy downpours that started last week, much of the town's territory was flooded. As a result, six houses were completely destroyed on the town's outskirts and some neighboring houses were damaged, the media outlet said, citing officials.

Two people are believed to be still missing while many others remain trapped due to the landslide.

Since October, over 100 people died in flooding caused by heavy rains, according to government statistics.
