Typhoon Noru has made landfall and caused flooding in southern Attapeu province, Laos.

A large number of people have been affected by the storm, 300 houses were believed to have been flooded in the Sanxay district of Attapeu. At least 2,000 people have taken refuge in shelters and have moved away from swollen rivers.

Flooding also destroyed fishponds, damaged irrigation systems, schools, power lines, healthcare facilities, roads and other infrastructure. The Lao authorities urged all dams around the country to be closely monitored and prepare an emergency plan, especially for those whose reservoirs are nearly full.

Local authorities were continuing to collect information about the extent of the damage.
