The central region of Vietnam is facing a rainy spell which has been forecasted to end on Sunday.

Hoang Phuc Lam, deputy director of the National Centre for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting, said the rainy snap would cause the Ca, Ngan Sau and Ngan Pho rivers to flood.

The rainfall would be between 250mm and 500mm.

Central localities have also been predicted to experience flash floods and landslides due to the torrential rain.

According to Lam, a low-pressure area has appeared in the south of the Philippines’s Luzon Island. In the next 24 hours, it would become stronger and turn into a storm.

By the evening of September 25, the storm would enter the east of the East Sea, bringing about strong winds and heavy rain, including for the Paracel Islands.

Lam added that it was highly possible for the central region of Vietnam to see another rainy front from September 27 because of being impacted by the storm.

The region would experience peak flooding between October and November.

The National Centre for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting said that around 8-10 storms would occur on the East Sea by the year-end, including three to five that could directly affect Vietnam.
