HANOI, Vietnam -- Authorities in Vietnam say a windstorm and unseasonably cold temperatures have damaged houses and destroyed crops in Nghe An province.

No injuries were reported despite winds powerful enough to blow the roofs off an estimated 50 homes in the Anh Son district of Nghe An, the Voice of Vietnam Radio reported Monday.

Sunday's storm also damaged the area's rice crop and fruit orchards, Voice of Vietnam said.
