The number of people killed by typhoon Rammasun in Vietnam has risen to 17, officials said Monday.


According to flood control officials, of the 11 victims three were struck by lightning and the other eight were washed away by the flood, Xinhua reported.

Approximately 5,500 Vietnamese households have been evacuated to safe places.

Typhoon Rammasun made landfall in Vietnam's northeastern Quang Ninh province's Mong Cai city, some 220 km northeast of Hanoi Saturday morning.
