Intense rainfalls which have been affecting south-central Vietnam since last week triggered a deadly landslide in Nha Trang, on December 20, 2016. At least two people died while ten others were injured. Since December 12, when rainfalls started, at least 24 people have lost their lives.

The massive landslide occurred in the early morning hours on December 20 (local time), taking the locals by surprise as the rocks and dirt from the mountain collapsed while they were asleep.

According to the officials, six houses in Phuoc Dong Commune, about 12 km (7.5 miles) southwest of Nha Trang, were completely devastated while several other homes were damaged, as well.
