Two storms, depressions may hit mainland in November

Hanoi, November 3 (VNA) – Two or three storms and tropical depressions may appear in the East Sea this November with one or two likely to hit the central and southern regions of Vietnam.

Central provinces should beware of floods and landslides as downpours will continue this month, according to the National Centre for Hydro-Meteorological Forecasting.

Heavy rains are also predicted for the southern region in the first week of November, the centre said, adding that about four or five cold spells will roll into the northern region with increased intensity and frequency compared to October.

Eight storms have occurred in the East Sea since the beginning of 2016 with storms Mirinae in July and Nida and Dianmu in August seriously affecting northern localities.

The central region suffered from severe floods in mid-October and flooding due to torrential rains still continues at present.
