Typhoon NARI to impact Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Thailand

The typhoon is making landfall in central Vietnam early Tuesday (UTC) with sustained winds of about 125km/hr.

NARI killed at least 26 people in Central Luzon, Philippines, over the weekend, with many more reported as missing, affecting tens of thousands of people in the region.

The typhoon left at least 60 towns submerged under floodwater in Aurora, Bulacan, Nueva Ecija, Pampanga and Zambales provinces, destroying or damaging scores of homes and tens of thousands of hectares of crops.

Typhoon NARI will impact Vietnam, China’s Hainan Province, Laos, Cambodia and Thailand in the next few days.

China

Heavy rains which began battering Hainan Province, the southern part of Guangdong Province and the southeastern part of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region early Sunday are expected to intensify,  prompting Hainan province to issue a “red alert,” said a report.

Cambodia

NARI is forecast to dump moderate-to-heavy rains on more than half of Cambodia’s 24 provinces, said the Ministry of Water Resources and Meteorology on Monday.

“The country has been hit by Mekong River [flooding] and flash floods in recent weeks. Nhim Vanda, vice-president of the National Committee for Disaster Management, said Monday that in the last four weeks, floods have claimed at least 122 lives and affected some 1.5 million people,” said a report.

Additionally, floodwaters have submerged 250,000 hectares of rice paddies, and destroyed or damaged 110 km of national roads and more than 300 km of gravel roads, the report said.
