Vietnam's deadliest storm this year, Typhoon Damrey, has killed 106 people, while dozens of dangerously full reservoirs release water as the southeast Asian nation prepares to host a regional summit.
As of Wednesday, 106 people were known to have died because of the year's 12th major storm, which struck on Saturday, leaving 25 missing and 197 injured, the country's search and rescue committee said.
