Flooding and landslides in northwest Vietnam have killed at least 100 people and left 50 missing, officials say.
Tropical storm Kammuri battered mountain villages in Lao Cai province over the weekend, downing power lines and cutting transportation links.
Torrents of water swept entire villages away, local officials said, while other victims were buried under mountains of mud.
Hundreds of troops are using trucks and boats to reach people in flooded areas.
"We have reached some areas that had been isolated for two days," Thao A Tua, a local disaster relief official, told the French news agency AFP.
"We are focusing on finding the people still missing. It's bad, we are afraid they are dead and we'll have to recover their bodies."
