Typhoon Damrey made landfall in Vietnam on Saturday, one day ahead of the start of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Leaders' Week in Da Nang city.

In the worst-hit province of Khanh Hoa, 14 people were killed by collapsing houses or were washed away by floods, the provincial disaster agency said in a statement on Saturday.

The storm comes days before a global meeting of foreign leaders for next week's APEC conference in Da Nang, where weather authorities said there was a risk of flooding and landslides.

At least 22 people are missing, including 17 crew from cargo ships that sank off the coast of Binh Dinh. Seventy-four other crew members were rescued earlier.

Deontay Wilder blasts prospect of Dillian Whyte showdown, only wants Anthony Joshua
Unwisely, it turned out, because another big right as part of a flurry of punches sent the 38-year-old challenger back down. WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder made a huge statement when he knocked out Bermane Stiverne in one round.

After Damrey landed, the two provinces of Khanh Hoa and Phu Yen faced heavier rains, with waves six to eight metres in height, mass power outage, uprooting of trees and damage to property, reports Xinhua news agency.

More than 40 flights were cancelled. The city will host US President Donald Trump from November 10 as well as China's Xi Jinping, Russia's Vladimir Putin and counterparts from other APEC members.

Vietnam, with a population of more than 90 million people, is prone to destructive storms, due to its long coastline.

Typhoon Damrey is wreaking havoc across large parts of central and southern Vietnam.
