The National Floods and Storms Control Agency said in a statement on Saturday that the floods had inundated nearly 250,000 homes, but disaster officials say the flood waters have largely receded allowing residents to return to clean up their homes.

Disaster officials say the deaths occurred in five central provinces, with Binh Dinh the worst-hit province with 18 people dead. Another nine people are missing.

Vietnam is prone to floods and storms, with hundreds of people killed each year.
