Storm Noul made landfall in north-central Vietnam on Friday morning and later weakened into a tropical depression, according to the National Center for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting.

The storm, which was not as strong as earlier predicted, entered the mainland between Quang Binh and Thua Thien-Hue Provinces at around 10:00 am, unleashing winds at 40-60km per hour and gusts at up to 75km an hour.

It then moved westward and was downgraded to a tropical depression.

Authorities in Quang Binh, Quang Tri, and Thua Thien-Hue Provinces, as well as in central Da Nang City on Thursday planned to evacuate about 1.17 million people if wind speeds reach between 90km and 120km per hour.

Due to influences of the storm, rainfall measured at 100-300 millimeters battered many central provinces on Friday morning.

Downpours accompanied by strong winds are forecast to continue hitting localities from north-central Ha Tinh Province to central Quang Ngai Province until the end of the day.
