Vietnamese authorities cautioned on Monday of the danger of floods and landslides activated by Tropical Storm Conson, even after the low-pressure system deteriorated off the nation’s main coast at the weekend.
Heavy rain brought by the storm eliminated someone, harmed 31 homes and flooded more than 1,000 hectares (2,472 acres) of rice fields in main Vietnam, the nation’s catastrophe management company stated.
Last week, the authorities put 500,000 soldiers on standby, prepared evacuation strategies and purchased vessels to remain in port as the nation braced for the arrival of Conson.
“Areas from Quang Binh to Quang Ngai and Kon Tum are facing the threat of landslides and floods,” Vietnam’s weather condition company stated in a declaration, describing main seaside locations and Kon Tum in the nation’s main highlands.
No damage has actually been reported up until now to the coffee farms in the Central Highlands, the nation’s primary growing belt.
“The coffee farms are safe and we expect to start harvesting from November,” coffee grower Tran Dinh Trong from the Central Highlands province of Dak Lak stated.
Vietnam is susceptible to devastating storms and flooding due to its long shoreline. Natural catastrophes– primarily floods and landslides activated by storms– eliminated 379 individuals and hurt 1,060 others in the nation in 2015.
Separately, Typhoon Chanthu, which at one point was classified by the Philippine weather condition bureau as a classification 5 storm, deteriorated after striking the northern most area of the Philippines on Saturday, its weather condition bureau stated.
Authorities in Shanghai and surrounding seaside areas have actually cancelled flights, and suspended schools, trains and trains as Chanthu approached China after drenching Taiwan though triggering little damage there.
