Typhoon Haikui to dwindle before hitting Vietnam

Typhoon in Vietnam post

The residents of Vietnam are still on that recuperate period wreaked by deadly Typhoon Damrey. The bad news is that another Tropical Storm Haikui has expected to knock out the region, but the weather models are indicating that as quickly as Haikui strengthened; the opposite is now taking place. So we can say that before targeting the country next week, the system may weaken to a tropical depression.

The warm waters of the South China Sea made Haikui to become a sturdier tropical storm this end of the week. As it tracks offshore of China’s Hainan Island and toward Central Vietnam from Sunday to Tuesday (local time), the system is anticipated to lose a battle with stronger wind shear and drier air.


Landfall may happen between Dong Hoi and Qui Nhon. Haikui is most expected to affect limited to a much smaller area within this region. The weathermen are also of the view that Haikui could track farther to the north into Hainan Island before moving into southern mainland China.

The good news is that due to the weakened state of Haikui, widespread flooding rain that Typhoon Damrey unleashed in Vietnam a week ago is not anticipated. Isolated flooding and landslides may result with the ground still drenched from Damrey. The risk of damaging winds will lessen as Haikui weakens on its way toward Vietnam.

Prior to moving over the South China Sea, Haikui gave heavy rain across the Central Philippines earlier this week. Schools were shut as flooding and landslides ensued.

While Haikui tracks toward Central Vietnam, weathermen have kept an eye on the South China Sea as another tropical system may attempt to form and target Southern Vietnam during the mid of next week.
