HANOI A landslide early Sunday killed at least 14 military personnel and left eight missing in central Vietnam, the government said, in what could be the country’s largest military loss in peacetime as it battles major floods.

The landslide hit the barracks of a unit of the 4th Vietnam Military Region in the central province of Quang Tri, the government said in a statement on its website. This came days after another landslide killed 13 people, mostly soldiers, in the neighboring province of Thua Thien Hue.

“We had another sleepless night,” Deputy Defense Minister Phan Van Giang told reporters Sunday.

The government later said 14 bodies had been found and eight others remained missing.

“We have never lost so many military members, including two generals and high-ranking officials, in natural disasters,” the government said on Facebook.

Heavy rains since early October have caused the worst flooding in years, with more than 80 people killed in central Vietnam. Heavy rain is expected in the coming days.

State media on Sunday reported that rivers in Quang Tri province rose to their highest levels in over 20 years, flooding more than 40,000 homes in the province and killing dozens of people.

In Thua Thien Hue province, rescue teams struggled driving the rain as they searched for at least 15 missing construction workers after a landslide earlier in the week in a mountainous area.

Rainfall of up to 600 millimeters (24 inches) is likely to continue in parts of central Vietnam until Wednesday, the country’s weather agency said on Sunday.
