Currently, both the storm and depression tend to move northward. Therefore, they are unlikely to affect Vietnam’s mainland, according to Le Thi Xuan Lan, former deputy head of the forecasting bureau under the Southern Hydrometeorology Station.

However, the circulation area will worsen weather conditions in the areas off Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelagoes, she said, urging fishermen to keep a close watch on the situation in order to seek shelters.

Last week, heavy rain battered Ho Chi Minh City harder than nearly any storm since 1984, resulting in large-scale flooding throughout the southern metropolis.

The rain was the result of the combined effects of a tropical convergent strip, trough, and monsoon, the weather station elaborated.

Multiple streets in District 12, District 7, District 4, Thu Duc District, Binh Thanh District, and Go Vap District were severely flooded over the course of the storm.

Meanwhile, photos of commuters pushing broken-down motorbikes and automobiles through inundated streets flooded social media.

Massive amounts of rainwater also poured into houses in the affected areas, causing damage to furniture and appliances./.
