Death toll from Typhoon Damrey hits 10 in Thailand

At least 10 people have been killed and three are still missing in northern Thailand in the aftermath of Typhoon Damrey, officials said Saturday.

Seven died in Lampang province where one villager was reported missing, and three were killed when floods hit the tourist resort province of Chiang Mai, according to the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation.

Two villagers were missing in Mae Hong Son province in the far northeast, which borders Myanmar.

The typhoon, packing winds of 200 kilometres (125 miles) per hour, left at least 114 people dead during its sweep through East Asia -- 63 in Vietnam, 25 in China, 16 in the Philippines, and 10 in Thailand.

Thai authorities have evacuated some 2,000 people and more than 32,000 have had their homes or property damaged.

The disaster prevention department said 40 roads, 24 bridges and one reservoir were damaged in the floods, which began on Tuesday.

In the meanwhile flooding has eased in several provinces, AFP reports.
