According to the National Centre for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting, a low tropical pressure area in the East Sea developed into a storm, the eighth so far this year. It is forecast to bring torrential rains to the North and Central Regions.

The central provinces of Thua Thien-Hue, Quang Binh and Ha Tinh are forecast to have flooding.

Deputy PM Hai has asked local authorities and border guards to call on vessels in Quang Binh to Phu Yen provinces to take shelter and evacuate people in vulnerable areas to higher places. 

Related ministries and agencies were tasked to inspect safety of dams and reservoirs in response to possible flooding./.
