The central region to face another low tropical pressure

The low tropical pressure would cause rains for provinces from Thua Thien-Hue to Binh Thuan from today, November 4.

The provinces of Quang Ngai, Binh Dinh, Phu Yen and Khanh Hoa would see the high rainfall of 70-120 mm in 24 hours, while some areas could face up to 150 mm.

Localities from Quang Nam to Binh Thuan have been warned of floods.

Some provinces such as those from Quang Nam to Ninh Thuan would encounter floods and landslides, particularly in mountainous areas.

The central region of Vietnam recently experienced Storm Matmo which damaged power transmission lines which resulted in power loss for around 900,000 local households.

The typhoon also ruined 144 houses and 2,000 metres of dyke in Quy Nhon City, Binh Dinh Province, leading to losses of VND400 billion (USD1.73 million).
