Tree crashes into street as Typhoon Usagi batters southern Vietnam

This is the dramatic moment a tree was uprooted by Typhoon Usagi and came crashing down in a street in southern Vietnam on Sunday.

According to the filmer, Mr Khoa, the tree had stood in front of his shop in the port city of Vung Tau for many years.

He confirmed that the tree did not hit his shop or any other building when it came down and no-one was injured in the incident.

Typhoon Usagi is forecast to continue to track westward into southern Vietnam, eventually turning northwest into Cambodia by Monday.

It will unload heavy rainfall, threatening flooding mudslides and local wind damage.
