Storm Vamco barreled into Vietnam on Sunday after wreaking devastation in the Philippines , where the death toll rose further and the search for survivors continued. Vietnam's Disaster Management Authority said at least five people were injured but no fatalities were reported. The storm, which was downgraded from a typhoon, made landfall with winds of up to 90 kilometers per hour (56 mph), uprooting trees and ripping the roofs off houses and schools. In an effort to reduce the number of casualties, Vietnamese authorities had evacuated some 650,000 residents from seven coastal provinces to higher and safer ground.

Vamco is the latest in a series of storms that have pummeled Vietnam over the past six weeks, causing flooding and landslides that have resulted in the deaths of at least 159 people while 70 others are still missing. The severe weather events have damaged or destroyed more than 400,000 homes, according to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. Roads and bridges have been washed away, power supplies disrupted, and crucial food crops ruined, meaning at least 150,000 people are at risk of going hungry.

Attitudes toward free expression are evolving as more of our discourse takes place online and concerns about the growing preponderance of "lawful but awful" content and discourse mount. Today's young adults struggle to reconcile the value of a radically permissive free speech culture on the one hand, and support for inclusivity on the other. At the same time, many young activists have found agency and voice in recent protests for racial equality, a right enshrined by the First Amendment and its interpretation by American jurisprudence.
