Malaysia – Military forces were deployed on Sunday to help thousands of displaced people in Malaysia’s northern state of Penang, officials said, as floodwater rose from more than 24 hours of incessant rain. At least 2,000 people had been evacuated and 80 percent of the state was hit by typhoon-like winds and heavy rain. Floodwater had risen to 3-4 metres (10-12 feet).

Thailand – Heavy rain and floods yesterday ravaged many parts of the South, particularly Nakhon Si Thammarat and Phatthalung provinces, affecting many people and damaging homes and farms.

Vietnam – The death toll from the floods brought by Typhoon Damrey has risen to 27 wile nearly two dozen are missing. The storm, which made landfall on Saturday, is the worst in decades to strike the country’s southern coastal region, an area normally spared the typhoons that typically hit further north. More than 40,000 homes were damaged as heavy rains and 130 kph (80 mph) winds tore through the area, leaving 27 dead and 22 reported missing, according to the disaster management office. The storm has since dissipated over land, but is still expected to bring some more rain.
