HA NOI (VNS)-- People in northern and central provinces have been warned to be vigilant for flash floods and landslides following heavy rain brought by Typhoon Bebinca.

While the National Centre for Hydro-Meteorological Forecasting said that while the typhoon had weakened, flood threats were still high.

Some districts saw a great amount of rain on Sunday, with the largest downpours in places such as the northern province of Nam Dinh's Van Ly District with 130mm rainfall, as well as the central province of Nghe An's Con Cuong and Do Luong districts with 209 mm and 319mm, respectively.

The typhoon submerged more than 1,300ha of aqua culture ponds and resulted in the loss of a fishing ship and about 2,000ha of oysters in the northern province of Thai Binh.

Supervision on the operation of irrigation systems in the province has been strengthened to prevent more than 3,700ha of rice seeding from being waterlogged.

The northern mountainous province of Yen Bai has moved residents from areas at high risk of land slides, including Yen Bai City, Tran Yen and Yen Binh districts.

Local rescue teams and authorities are on standby to respond quickly to any emergencies. -- VNS
