Most of the victims either drowned at sea or in swollen rivers, or were struck by uprooted trees, electric posts and other debris, according to the country’s National Disaster Coordinating Council.
Conson was weakened by its passage over the Philippines archipelago, but regained Category 1 force while brushing China’s southern island province of Hainan on Sunday, killing two people.
Remnants of the storm later lashed central and northern parts of Vietnam, where 17 people were left missing.
The country’s disaster agency reports that Conson damaged more than 600 homes and wrecked 43 boats before dissipating over Vietnam’s mountainous interior.
Typhoon Chanthu formed directly in Conson's wake, affecting some of the same areas just a few days later.
