HANOI, Nov 1 (Reuters) Flash floods killed at least 13 people and injured 31 in central Vietnam this week and more heavy rain over the next few days could add to the damage, the government said today.

About 14,000 homes were submerged in Quang Tri, Quang Binh, Quang Nam provinces, it said.

A tropical pressure system made land in central Vietnam onTuesday, dumping heavy up to 465 mm of rain on several coastal provinces and raised river levels, government weather forecasters said.

The heavy rain would continue today and tomorrow, raising the risk of more serious floods in the central provinces from Nghe An to Quang Ngai, they said.
