China scours South China Sea for 58 fishermen missing in storm
HANOI, Vietnam (AP) - Chinese airplanes and boats scoured parts of the South China Sea on Tuesday looking for nearly 60 people missing after a tropical storm sunk three fishing boats.
In central Vietnam, people repaired homes and dragged trees from streets that were uprooted when Wutip slammed into the coastline late Monday. Two men were killed in when a radio station antenna tower fell on them, Vietnam's disaster agency said.
Another man was killed when a wall collapsed. Close to 100,000 homes were damaged.
Chinese authorities say Wutip, which means butterfly in Cantonese, sank at three Chinese fishing vessels on Sunday in the South China Sea.
