Parts of Southeast Asia have seen a worsening of their annual rainy season, despite not being directly hit by Typhoon Usagi, which barreled through the Philippines and China in recent days, AFP reported.
Central and southern Vietnam have been hit by bad weather since early last week, with 24 dead and six missing. In Cambodia, at least 12 people have died in the deluge.
