The storm made landfall in the central region on Sunday morning and weakened into a tropical depression after hitting Thua Thien-Hue Province.
Six houses in Thua Thien-Hue Province were collapsed while the roofs of more than 5,700 houses were blown off, including 4,687 in Thua Thien-Hue and 809 in Quang Tri.
