Tropical Storm Noul Wreaks Havoc in SE Asia, Killing At Least a Dozen

About a dozen are dead and hundreds displaced in Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam in the aftermath of Tropical Storm Noul, which slammed into mainland Southeast Asia last week, sources in the region told RFA.

The storm made landfall in Vietnam Sept. 18, just north of the central coastal city of Danang, raging westward into Laos before mostly dissipating there. Its remnants then barreled over into Thailand, leaving homes and farms flooded and roads buried by mudslides in its wake.

Cambodia was the hardest hit country in the region—11 people lost their lives—even though it was not in the storm’s direct path.
