Poorly organized Typhoon Pakhar can be seen making landfall near Ho Chi Minh City.
Southern parts of Vietnam were drenched by the season’s first typhoon in the northwest Pacific Ocean.

Officials said Typhoon Pakhar was responsible for four fatalities and several injuries after high winds and downpours struck Khanh Hoa province.

Three of the victims were washed away in flash floods. High winds tore the roofs off more than 4,400 homes and thousands of acres of rice paddies were swamped.

Remnants of the storm later brought rainfall to Cambodia, eastern Thailand and Laos.
