The south-central and Central Highlands provinces of Vietnam reported a rainfall of up to 200 millimeters on Wednesday following the impact of a tropical depression.

As of 4:00 am on Wednesday, the eye of the tropical depression was located on the shore of the south-central province of Khanh Hoa, with wind speed estimated at 40-60 kilometers per hour (kph) and gales measured at 62-74 kph.

Under the effect of the depression, south-central and Central Highlands provinces saw a rainfall of 80-150 millimeters within a nine-hour period ending 4:00 am on Wednesday, while some areas reported over 200 millimeters in the same bout. 

The tropical depression will keep moving west-northwest at the speed of 10-15 kph before weakening into a depression zone, according to the National Center for Hydrometeorological Forecasting.

By 4:00 pm on Wednesday, the eye of the depression will have been located in the southern area of the Central Highlands, with wind speed down to 40 kph and below. 

The agency also outlined a sea area defined within the 10.5 and 13 degrees north latitude, as well as the 110.5 degrees east longitude, which will be deemed dangerous until 4:00 pm on Wednesday. 

All fishing boats, aquaculture operations, and sea dykes in this area will be vulnerable to damage from rough seas and gale winds, the center added.
