Tropical depression sparks storm warning

HA NOI — Coastal regions of Viet Nam could face a severe storm in the next 24 hours, following yesterday's warning from the National Centre for Hydro-Meteorological Forecasting that a nearby tropical depression could escalate.

The centre forecasts that at 1pm today, the depression located at 320km south-east of Truong Sa (Spratly) Islands with wind power of 62-74 kph, could cause heavy rain in the sea of provinces from central Quang Binh to southern Ba Ria-Vung Tau provinces.

The Central Steering Board for Flood and Storm Prevention Committee and the National Search and Rescue Committee have asked provinces from Quang Binh to Ba Ria-Vung Tau to closely manage boat sailing; relay the depression route to boat owners and carry out storm prevention measures. — VNS
