HA NOI (VNS)– Storm Krosa entered the East Sea this morning and is likely to become the 12th tropical storm to batter Viet Nam's coast this year.

According to the National Centre for Hydro-Meteorological Forecasting, the storm is expected to hit the north central coast and cause torrential rain across the region.

The centre said by 7am this morning, the eye of the storm was about 800km east of Hoang Sa (Paracel) Archipelago, with the strongest winds ranging from 103-133km per hour.

It is moving west at 15-20km per hour.

In the meantime, central coastal provinces have quickly taken action to prepare for the storm.

The Committee for Flood and Storm Control in central and central highland regions said over 42,000 fishing boats had been ordered to avoid storm danger areas and find anchorage by 8am. – VNS
