HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA – Today’s Maritime Image of the Day shows a military helicopter as it rescues sailors of a submerged ship at Cua Viet Port in Quang Tri province, Vietnam on October 11th. The photo was taken by photographer Ho Cau for VNA (Vietnam News Agency).

Images from the region showed entire villages in the province of Quang Tri submerged due to the flooding, which also cut food supplies to thousands of residents. More than 40,000 people have been evacuated to higher ground.

Authorities say they expect the situation to worsen when another tropical storm, named Linfa, brings a new round of heavy rain.  

Vietnam is prone to destructive storms that trigger floods and landslides, with central coast areas most vulnerable. At least 132 people were reported either dead or missing due to natural disasters last year.
