As of 15 October, the national authorities of Vietnam report three people killed (all of which in Quang Nam province), two missing and 49 injured, as Tropical Cyclone NARI made landfall near the city of Da Nang, central Vietnam, on 14 October (UTC). 300mm of rainfall in just 12 hours were measured in Ha Tinh province between 15 and 16 October. Damages include over 300 houses destroyed, over 12 000 damaged by the strong winds or flooded and ca. 5 000 ha of agriculture land affected.

After Vietnam, NARI moved over central Lao PDR and eastern Thailand, weakening, but still producing heavy rainfall. In southern Lao 65mm in 24 hours were measured on 15 October and 97mm in the north.

In Thailand, where 21 provinces are already suffering from floods, 50 to 100mm of rain in 24 hours were measured in numerous places in the eastern parts. Isolated heavy rain could still affect eastern and central Thailand on 16 October and the flooding situation is likely to increase slightly, according to the National Disaster Warning Centre.
