At least eight people died and 45 others were reported missing in two separate landslides in Vietnam on Thursday after the country was hit by typhoon Molave, bringing with it heavy rains and strong winds, according to state media.

Two separate landslides occurred in Tra Van and Tra Leng communes in Nam Tra My district of Quang Nam province, reports Xinhua news agency.
