  • Quang Ninh is reportedly the hardest hit of Northern provinces by Typhoon HaiYan.

  • Considering the limited impact of this typhoon, most of the international stakeholders will not implement any specific response activity, and they will keep focusing on the communities affected by previous typhoons Wutip and Nari.

  • National Center for Hydro-Meteorological Forecasting reported a new tropical depression formed off the Philippines will move westward to the East Sea towards Viet Nam in the coming days.

  • National Committee for Search and Rescue (VINASARCOM) and the Central Committee for Flood and Storm Control (CCFSC) already alerted coastal provinces from North to South of incoming storm and preparedness requirements.
