Vietnamese authorities say 37 people have died from floods and landslides caused by heavy rain.

Another 40 are missing, and thousands have been evacuated from their homes, as a tropical depression sweeps across northern and central Vietnam.

Among the missing is a local journalist reporting on the floods, who was swept away after a river bridge collapsed.

The South East Asian country often experiences severe storms, and sees several deaths every year from floods.
