The Cao Bang province reported 700 deaths in one day, and 1800 deaths throughout the winter in the one province alone.

Northern Vietnam is expected to face a fresh cold snap starting Saturday.

On Friday, 200 cows were found dead in a Wisconsin field. Samples are currently being examined to determine the cause of the sudden deaths.
