Tropical Storm Sinluka is forecast to make landfall in north-central Vietnam on Sunday, bringing downpours to most regions throughout the country.

Sinluka, the second storm to have hit Vietnam in 2020, was located in the maritime area between northern Thai Binh Province and north-central Nghe An Province as of 7:00 am on Sunday, according to the National Center for Hydro-metrological Forecasting.

Average wind speed was recorded at 60-75km per hour and gusts at up to 100km an hour.

In the next 12 hours, the storm will travel northwest and make landfall between northern Ninh Binh Province and Nghe An before weakening into a tropical depression.

Wind speed will decrease to between 40 and 50km per hour.

The tropical depression will continue to subside as it heads toward Laos in the next 12 to 24 hours.

Due to the influence of Storm Sinluka, rough seas will occur in the central and southern sections of the East Vietnam Sea.

Heavy rain measuring at 50-150 millimeters per 24 hours will dampen localities from Thanh Hoa to Quang Binh Provinces in north-central Vietnam on Sunday.

From August 2 to 5, downpours will also batter northern localities, including Hanoi.

Medium to heavy rain accompanied by thunderstorms and gusts is in the forecast for the Central Highlands and southern Vietnam, including Phu Quoc Island, on Sunday.
