Tropical Storm Sinlaku is likely to make landfall in Vietnam

November 29, 2014 6:10 PM |

The tropical storm Sinlaku, after lashing Philippines with heavy rain and strong winds, strengthened over the open waters of South China Sea.

At present, the system is moving in a northwest direction at a speed of about 25 kmph. It seems to be approaching Vietnam and Cambodia and could make landfall within next 24 hours.

On Saturday morning, the eye of the storm was positioned approximately 500 kilometers east of Ho Chi Minh City of Vietnam. It sustained winds of about 80 kmph. The system may just attain the status of a typhoon by gaining strength and sustaining wind speed of 119 kmph. The tropical depression named Sinlaku is likely to bring torrential from Saturday night onwards.

After landfall, the storm is expected to weaken but bring heavy rain in Quang Ngai and extend up to Khanh Hoa Provinces. It will weaken into a depression after bringing heavy rain in the Indo-China Peninsula region.

The storm will cross Thailand and reach the North Andaman Sea and may not gain further strength. However, Skymet will keep its readers updated.
