HCMC – The central region spanning from Nghe An to Phu Yen provinces is grappling with moderate to heavy rains.

Rainfalls in Thanh Hoa and Nghe An provinces are predicted to range from 50 to 100mm today, November 14, with some areas expecting up to 150mm of rain.

Ha Tinh Province is forecasted to experience rainfall in the range of 80-150mm, with a maximum of 200mm. Moving southward, provinces from Quang Binh to Phu Yen can expect rainfalls of 80-180mm, while some areas may see heavy rain up to 250mm.

The incessant heavy rain may put rivers from Thua Thien Hue to Quang Ngai at risk of flooding, reaching at least level 2 and potentially exceeding level 3 natural disaster risk. Authorities are warning of potential flash floods in small rivers and streams, landslides on steep slopes, and waterlogging in low-lying areas.

This weather pattern is expected to persist from November 13 to 17.

In addition to heavy rains, cold air masses are expected to bring colder weather to the northern and north-central regions. Temperatures in northern provinces will range from 15 to 18 degrees Celsius, while in the uplands, they will be between 12 and 15 degrees, and below 11 degrees on high mountains.

Local authorities are taking proactive measures to address the challenging weather conditions. In response to the situation, Danang has decided to keep students at home since November 13. Meanwhile, Quang Binh authorities have announced precautionary measures for ships to safeguard against strong gusts.
