Typhoon Damrey batters Vietnam

Residents scramble to pick up their motorbikes as deadly Typhoon Damrey strikes Vietnam.

The 90mph winds have so far killed at least 19 people as they sweep across southern and central parts of the country.

Footage recorded in coastal province Nha Trang shows trees bent sideways as sheets of heavy rain blow inwards from the sea.

Motorcycles lie scattered on the ground outside the hotel, from where the typhoon was filmed. People venture out into the street to pick up their scooters as the wind and rain starts to subside.

More than 30,000 people have been evacuated since the full force of the deadly storm hit on Friday night. More people are missing and hundreds of buildings have been destroyed.
